What it's like to have a buttery horse ...

Lol, rode in a Waterford bit today. Holy smokes, Tiki just melted into it! Kept his shoulders straight, stretched down and round, and felt very forward with his new shoes! He actually did feel as though he was stepping under himself and reaching out at the trot. He didn't feel gimpy or tentative at ALL, yay!:) The right lead felt just as good as the left lead, and on the straightaway they felt GREAT. He leaned in both directions, and I pushed down my inside hip, and it helped immensely. He felt great in the bit; very soft and willing to bend and round. Only rode for about 20 quick mins today; plan to set up a little jump tomorrow. Yay for finding bits that work!:)


  1. Awesome!! Can't wait to hear how it goes with that bit when you put him over some jumps

  2. If you are looking for a waterford to purchase, I have one that I no longer use....

    Let me know.
