    Default Does anyone have a Micklem bridle they'd be willing to lend me?

    I've read about William Micklem's bridle, and I'm curious to try it - I have a few horses in my barn with some bridle-related training issues, and I'm always open to new stuff. But to the tune of $140+, it's not a risk I can really take.

    Does anyone have one they'd let me borrow for a bit? I will pay all postage, and take excellent care of it. PM or email me. Thanks!

    Hi there,
    If you would really like to try a bridle, you can message William directly on his Barnmice page at http://www.barnmice.com/profile/williammicklem and he might know of someone in your vicinity who has the bridle. You can also ask him any questions you like, and voice any concerns. He is unbelievably nice (and knowledgeable)

    I sent him an email, and he wrote back that he would try to find one for me. As that was a good six months ago, I'm guessing that option won't pan out. Thanks, though!

    itss not a bridle you need but to work out what wrong with your hands

    also dont treat horse horses as this will reward a horse and make that behaviour ten times worse
    also look in your tack not all saddles fit all horses and any illl fitting tack ie bridle bit will have the same result in mouth issues
    same as teeth or any health issues
    also look to what your feeding as this to can be horse related to include behahiour issues to include adavsion of any kind
    alway feed to amount of work given type and size of the horse
    always read the back of the feedpackets and understand your feeds that you are gviing the horse
    to much of one thing and or plenty of grub lush grass will also have the horse behaving like a nurd as in any handling issues becuase its over loaded in it its mind with feedstuffs so will have issues

    I've seen dressagediosa ride. She has very sympathetic, quiet, educated hands. Here's a recent ride.

    LOL sometimes it is just the horse and not everything else, especially not the hands based on that video.

    I am pretty darn sure Dressagediosa knows her stuff.

    DD if I had one, I would gladly loan it to you. I am very curious about the bridle, but I don't want to fork out the money for one if it is just some sort of useless piece of tack. If you get to use one, please let us all know how it work!
