Has anyone ever been able to find a KK to fit a medium sized pony? It is my favorite bit, bar none. Just started riding a medium pony and think he'd benefit from one. In Dover the smallest they have is a 5"- has anyone found any smaller? If not- has anyone found anything similar?
Oh- and I'm referring to the standard snaffle with the "bean" in the center.
Thanks all for your responses I'm going to check out all the links. It is entirely new to me to be trying to outfit a pony (and a medium pony at that!). Seems like so much of the dressage items don't come in pony-size......
It is a real challenge finding quality dressage gear for ponies. I have two medium ponies (one with a really refined little head), and several larges that will be ready to start next year.
I bought some gear when I was in Germany several years ago which was the best way by far. If only I could justify another trip for tack shopping! I have occasionaly lucked out on ebay...
Last week I bought pony reins (hard to find in black), a fleece dressage girth, and a nice, basic pony sized dressage pad for justforponies. The service was really good.
Central Florida's best tack source, Jo McKrackin's Mobile Tack has now ordered some adorable pony pads from Germany that are great for showing. She also has some pony bridles and bits.
I have had a heck of a time with bridles for the medium ponies...the one I am using now is a Bobby's and I have been underimpressed with it. Less then a year old, lightly used...today the flash fell off;( I bought an RTS bridle, but the proportions are wrong for the medium. Anyone have any bridle advice?
Thanks for the pony websites! I also had a very hard time finding a 4-1/2" bit for a young horse, those sites would have helped me out! I found a place in Florida via the internet that had small bits____but I failed to book mark the place. <argh> Thanks, I'll keep the ones you all mentioned.
