Cook's BB fit question

Post by BalooEyes on Sat Nov 21, 2009 9:31 pm

Hi, I've been riding Baloo with his new cook's BB, and am just wandering if I have it adjusted right, since no one reakky uses bitless birdles around me to check with. here's a photo of him in it after a ride:




Is it too high up? I don't want it too low.

Looks good to me, and too low is bad. Is he comfy? They'll tend to give you signs if they're uncomfortable. Wendy's the person to ask Smile

He seems comfortable in it. He is very soft to cues and doesn't seem to be upset with it at all.

If its working well, I would leave it alone. The only thing I would change is that I would shorten the crossunder straps by one or two holes. There seems to be lots of length between the crossunder ring and the ring for the rein attachment.

I love my Cook BB. I think you and I have the same one.

Yeah, Baloo is doing so well with the Cook BB, I am so happy. I had a friend ride him since she's going to get on him once or twice for me while I am on vacation and she was amazed how well the BB worked, she's never ridden bitless before.

Thanks for the tip, I wasn't sure if shortening them was needed or not, but I agree my reins are suddenly a LOT longer, so I'll shorten the crossunders next time I ride.

HorseHippie, I have the black beta one, its great to have the beta and its's so soft and nice looking, I love it.

Mine is beta too and I love it! Soo easy to look after. I also have a leather western Cook bridle and it is really nice too. I am hoping Santa will bring me a leather english one...(If I can't have another horse, maybe the husband will get me a bridle...hee hee)
