The first day of the clinic I was riding Belle with a plain snaffle bit and whenever I tried to push her into a flat walk, she just fought the bit and we did not get very far! Grace Adams quickly realized the difficulty I was having and asked Bill to bring a different bridle and bit for Belle. It had the same bit but had flat shanks. It took a little while for Belle and I to get used to the new arrangement, but that afternoon we achieved a bit of a flat walk and by the next day we were even running!! The instructors, Barb and Jared, were extremely good and took lots of time with each of us! Everyone I met was so friendly and helpful and I thank you all for that! I drove home on adrenaline and could hardly wait to tell my hubby, Bob, all about it!! And I ordered a new bit for Belle too!!
Thanks Lois for making the trip from Saskatchewan with Belle! We hope to see you back next year.
