possibly might be needed.
I've been wondering for a while - you all know of the trouble i have getting a bit in her mouth!
and whilst I know that a 5" is too wide, i wonder also if the 4 1/2" is a shade narrow?
anyhoo, trimmer was out today, and stopped to chat for a bit after the feet were done, whilst i was tacking up, and she helped with the bitting performance - she also wondered if it was a shade narrow .... only a shade, though!
she suggested Nueu Schule (they're based about 30 miles away) and said that if necessary they can make one specially for the horse
also, there's a bit bank run by someone who trained there, and she comes out, so I've sent her an email asking her to do just that...
if I can find a bit she'll accept without a fight every time, and that she'll then work in, we'll be getting further!
Molly's feet were fine, trimmer very happy with them but suggests i put some linseed into her to keep the feet more moist (she says, better to put it inside, than outside!)
Rode after that; not as good as the other day, the trot was ok left rein but not right rein; the arena was a shade boggy at one end after all that rain last night
walk, however, is coming on nicely, and we're starting to make a small amount of progress on sideways and rein back...
