Introduction to the Snaffle

The last few days I have been bitting Ace up in a snaffle, letting him wear it and get used to it. I have been bending him on the ground and he had stopped chewing on it and was very relaxed. Up until this point I have been riding him in a hackamore but it's time to change into a bit. He is really soft in the hackamore and responding well so we are moving to the next step.

Yesterday I rode him in it, but the wind was so bad and my eyes were getting pitted with dirt we didn't get a whole lot accomplished. He was bending laterally when asked well and performing all of our exersices good in the bit. After awhile though he started chewing the bit so we need more work on giving on the ground.
