Hello everyone! So one of my mares, Hillary, is in re-training to drive at the moment. She is a rescue from Pennsylvania and her previous owners said she could drive. So I’ve been ground driving her almost everyday, we go out on wide open cranberry bogs and she’s amazing. However, she does this in an open bridle. She turns great, has great transitions and won’t stop and look at me at all. Very confident in the open bridle. When I put her in a closed bridle she is the complete opposite. She won’t turn, she’s is very hesitant to move forward at all and always tries to turn and look at me. She is so spooky with them on and overall a lot more nervous. So as I’m approaching the hitching point in her training what do you guys think of just letting her drive in an open bridle? I understand there are certain risks but as she has driven before maybe they used an open bridle? I know I do not want to hitch her while she is that nervous. Thank you and sorry for the long question. I appreciate any input!
