<quoted text>Sounds like you might need to change bits. What kind are you using now? Snaffle? Hackamore? Some horses develop a "hard mouth" and become used too used to one style of bit and they "tongue" it to lessen the pressure the rider can put on them for control. Try a different type and see if that helps. If not theres always the Alpo man.... LOL
I ride him in a snaffle, yes. I don't think bitting up will help. This is a training issue, and THAT needs to be addressed first and foremost. Thing is with bitting up is where does it end? Slapping on a harsher and harsher bit because of a SCHOOLING issue won't solve the cause, just offer a temporary solution to the outcome/problem.

The woman who rode him a few times I think buggered up all the schooling I've done with him to make him a calm and level-headed ride. She loves to run. Fast. And that put him in a mindset of "rider on my back = run as much and as fast as I want to"

So now the hard work starts. Again. In the meantime I guess I'll just have to learn to hold on when he doesn't listen to me. I know I can get him back to where I had him before it all became undone. It's just a matter of patience, perseverance and bravery...

Bitting up is the absolute last resort, something I don't think necessary. His ground manners are also horrible, he walks over me (tries to walk in front, dragging me along, etc.) So I need to teach him some ground manners first and get him to respect me on the ground first before the same can be used under saddle. It's scary how two years of hard work can become undone in a matter of two rides by someone else!

Forget everything you have read, heard or saw on the tube.
This is how you get in shape and stay in shape like a big cat.
WALK, for about 100 meters, then run like hell for the next(or as far as you can without vapor-locking)
Have you ever seen an overweight woman run? It's a sight for sore eyes. And the ... uhm ... large bust doesn't exactly help. I'll just have to lift my lazy ass off the couch and go for a brisk walk every day. Just for half an hour, and as I become fitter, I can increase the distance. Problem is, I don't want to do it alone. I need a "partner in crime" - I'm much too self-conscious to do it alone.....Ok, it sounds like I'm looking for excuses but I'm serious. Time to get my ass in gear and just do it

Since you asked, and I have trouble thinking of this scene again,I recall a very obese female waddeling across a truck stop parking lot. Not so bad in itself, but ... she was about 5'2" tall and weighted in around 150 kilos. Bad yes but the purple spandex and yellow scarf made me want to gag.
Now you know horror.

On a lighter note, can you believe the XO doesn't like my wall paper?
What's wrong with the instrument panel of a Cessna?

Let me guess, was she wearing super tight spandex?

I never think of age as a barrier. Besides, most 19 year old's would probably want something I'd consider obscene, like Miley Cyrus.

1256, before my time, and not the right numbers anyway.

Wow, I can only imagine what that must've looked like. Spandex is a priveledge, not a must. Wear at own discretion. I'm sure those people don't have a full length mirror in their house. Or just don't have enough self respect to dress properly
