We did have some minor steering issues where she would get bendy in the neck and throw a shoulder out. Part of the problem is we're still using the Happy Mouth Mullen bit, which is wonderful in many ways, but when you have a horse with a crazy rubber neck it can make it hard to capture their neck/shoulders. I just held a firm outside rein when our twenty meter canter circle turned into a thirty meter hexagon.
I kept our ride short because there was a lot going on the arena and I got such great transitions that I didn't want to jinx it. Here's a little pre-ride yawn from the pony.
I have ordered our new bit, a Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Snaffle and am anxiously awaiting it's arrival. I am also really looking forward to the rest of this week and getting more and more forward!
