Hi Mia,

What does your mare do with her head and neck when she gets strong and runs? Does she shake, or yank at all?

I sounds as though it could be the tongue pressure that is bothering her, but I would like to hear more about how she goes before I say definitely that that is what it is.

She throws it up and leans on the bit - Mia Baker 8 months ago

Hi Mia,

It is definitely the tongue pressure from the French Link that is causing the resistances that you are seeing in your mare.

I recommend a Loose Ring Happy Tongue Narrow for you. This will take the pressure off her tongue, which will allow her to listen to the bit, instead of resisting the pressure. You will find that she will stop throwing her head and will come back to you when you ask her to.
