    Good point about nylon cutting in. I do like what I see at Chimacum, and maybe I just need to suck it up and get a nice harness from the start. Glad to here you and your horse like the superflex collar, one more reason for me to consider it. It seems to me like the most comfortable option for the horse. I will check the website for local clubs.

    Yes, teaching to stand politely is something we are working on. I will work on finding a bridle and let you all know how it goes or if I get stuck. Thanks for all the suggestions.

    Thank you for the suggestions! I will do some measurements today and work on finding a good fitting bridle and bit. People keep giving me a hard time for my slowly growing equine supply collection already haha. Why do you like the bridle from Ozark? Just wondering?

    I wasn't able to find that book specifically but I found one on amazon that has decent reviews, I think i'll give it a try. Thank you! Here is the one I found: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1494309254/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1

    Training and Tack

    It was suggested that I move my post here instead of the miniature horse forum so here it goes: I've been working hard with my first mini, Cinnamon. I've had her about a month and a half and we've made a lot of progress. She's going to be 3 in May and I would love to train her to drive eventually but don't really know how to get started. What she can do: Yield her forequarters and hindquarters, stand still, back up, back over poles, walk, trot, poles, walk well on a lead with a slack rope in partner position, yielding to pressure on her head and neck, circle lunging and some lateral lunging, desensitizing, working with other horses near by, holding herself together over tarps, dragging tarps, flinging poles and swinging pvc around and over her, ropes around her legs and anything that my brain could think of. I wouldn't say all of these are mastered but many of them are adequate. I haven't done any intentional sidepassing with her yet. I've never driven and don't currently have a way to get anyone with experience to teach me or her. I will take it slow but I thought maybe the first step would be getting her used to a bridle with a bit while doing all the exercises mentioned above. Maybe some ground driving? I'd like to try and be thrifty but I also don't want to buy multiple harnesses. I like the superflex collar but don't know that it should be my first investment. Any suggestions on starting tack or should I just start with the better equipment? I should note that driving will probably just be strolling around the neighborhood, maybe some cde but most likely no showing.

    Shed Color?

    I didn't know that about clipping, good to know. I love her intense red so this is good news, thank you.

    Shed Color?

    What color will she shed? Her winter fluff is a beautiful red color but when I part it and look underneath it is dark. The second picture is of last summer when the breeder clipped her and she was much darker. Is the darker color what she will shed too? And is she considered bay or brown? Just curious thank you!
