Very strong pony

We have a very strong pony who hots up especially jumping. We have her in a Pony Fulmer Lock Up for dressage. She used to head shake, lean on the bit and put her head up and tank off. She no longer head shakes and leans alot less.
However with jumping sticks her head up and out and tanks off after jumping and very hard to stop unless you keep her on the bit. It dressage she will still put her head up if allowed to. We are looking for a bomber that will give control for jumping and x country. Thank you

Hi Sandra,

Your pony show signs of tongue sensitivity. The Lock Up spreads the pressure out over the whole mouth, it does not create a pressure point on the tongue, as most bits do.

For jumping though, just spreading the pressure out isn't enough, we need to remove pressure from the tongue.

I recommend a Fulmer Ported Barrel for jumping and cross country, this will take pressure off her tongue, but you will still have the back up of the turning aids from the Fulmer. For Dressage the Eggbutt Ported Barrel is legal, here you will find that with the mouth piece she will stop want to fight the bit by putting her head up, and will be more willing to take the contact.

Ok cool so will that also help the issue of her being so strong after the jump as it is a battle to get her back Thanks so much for your response - Sandra 6 months ago

Hi Sandra,

Horses are creatures of habit, the horse knows that after the jump the rider with check them before the next jump, when a horse is unhappy with the pressure of the bit, they will run away after the jump in an attempt to get away from the pressure. Having a pressure the horse is comfortable with, will stop the horse from wanting to run away.
