    I hate to agree with windbags calling other people windbags, but I must admit (I'm a scientist too) I couldn't stand Mary Wanless' books.

    Basically, it depends upon the horse. I knew a mare that every Spring would get very fussy in the mouth, we decided it was allergies and when she had the mullen-mouth bit she was much happier, by...

    100% agree with DQ, the horse has to want to be the center of attention. You have to be careful with them as youngsters though, since they can be quite pushy. Their temperament needs to be handled...

    Depends upon what the rider is doing. If they are tilted forward on the front of their seat (crotch), they need to tuck their tailbone under a bit to be more balanced on their seat bones.
