if anyone was interested in tuckers set up, have at it. 

Can anyone explain this to me? It looks like the reins are attached to the noseband as a pulley system similar to a bit less bridle?

it’s both. Tucker flats with the bit and when he’s jumping the bridle is converted into a bitless bridle.

Why do you leave the bit on your horse's bridle when you "flat" (what ever that means). If you're not connecting the reins to the bit then what is the point of having a bit in the first place? Just curious.

he flats with the bit. so all his dressage lessons are ridden with the reins attached to the bit. when he jumps the bridle is converted into a bitless. Tucker is a really strange horse, he used to be a wheeler on a coach team and he kind of went insane from it (understandably, he’s really not built to be a wheeler) so when he came to delval he was kind of a nut case from what i’ve heard. I guess Angelo really liked him or something since he’s still here. but last year he was only always ridden bitless. He can get kind of unmanageable when he’s bitless too so they got him this to get him used to the bit when being ridden, but it can also easily be changed to the bitless without really having to do too much. 

How did you first find Athena, and what drew you to her?

okay so last year was my first year of college and we had a like orientation week before classes officially started for the equine kids. and we were watching a demonstration in the wash stall and i was being an ass hole and not really paying attention, and i guess she had just gotten off the trailer and they were doing a quick soundness check and i kinda just saw her trot by and that was really it. later that day we were picking care horses and i asked for the “cute paint outside” and Cara told me that i shouldn’t pick her because she was an evil little mare ( she still to this day says that athena is evil lmao ) and i still wanted her to be my care horse anyway so i picked her. I’d never really actually met her before, but she was always really sweet with me even from the very beginning. but that’s really it. i just saw her for a second and thought she was pretty.

What kind of bridle is that?

it’s a micklem. they use it to flat him with the bit, and when he jumps its converted into a bitless bridle. 

what is your favorite thing about your horse?

i keep listing random things that i love about her every time someone asks this question. I like that she is mildly protective of me to other horses whenever i come over to her stall.

i dont understand how the rein connects to the bit/ bridle here… does anyone know what this is?

thats the magic of it. it doesn’t connect to the bit at all. Tucker is really sensitive to the bit so he only flats in it, but to get him more used to the bit they leave it attached. For jumping it’s a bitless. I’m pretty sure its a micklem headstall.
