    Imp did a clinic this past weekend with Anne Cizadlo. He was SO super for doing next to nothing all winter! Enjoy :)

    Please ignore my atrocious hands, I am not 100% comfortable riding in the double bridle.

    You guys look great! He's an old man too right? You wouldn't know it by the way he moves.

    Your hands are not catastrophic.

    You could train riding with two sets of reins at home by simply using two pairs with your snaffle bit, kind of simulating the curb if you don't feel confident enough using the double bridle without the trainer.

    Imp will be 21 June 18th! He certainly does not act or feel like the old man he is!

    A rein board is a useful thing when learning the double bridle. Basically the 'reins' are weighted and run through rings on the board, so one gets to practice holding two reins.
