I was wondering if anybody could give me some tips on the best way to intoduce a hackamore to my mare. I have had trouble finding a bit she likes but she has settled in a happymouth straight bar for the time being - she has settled with a bit before then decided she doesn't like it. She is sensitive to my aids and will slow down/stop when asked. I just dont want to put one on and her thinking i now have no control. I like the idea of a hackamore as it is an alternative than getting her more upset by swapping and changing her bit around. I have her teeth checked regularly so this is not a problem, i just want her to be happy and comfortable. She is a happy mare and is always willing to please aslong as she is comfortable!
