Hi, I have a 6 year old Argentinian Thoroughbred who hasn't competed for a year but who has played up to 8 goals. I am a novice so need some help if anyone can. Please can anyone advise which bit I should use? She was bred and started her training in Argentina - then she was brought to the UK and handled/ridden only by Argentinians. I'm not sure if they would use different bits? Would be grateful for any advice. Thank you.

Hey so my show horse gets very excited sometimes and when he spooks he spooks and I tonight he started bucking and rearing on the end of the lead and spooked at the ponies tore the lead form my hands and started at a dead run at the fence and did a rheining stop. If he does it again what should I do? Any points on how to make him stop??
I have had my mare for 3 weeks now. She gets turned out in a big 11 acre pasture and is ignoring the other horses (except one who is accepting her queenliness) because she wants to be queen but the top mare of course isnt letting her. Any whoo, whenever I try to go get her out, my mom will wait at the fence or gate, and we will call her. She will walk over to us and stop about 20 feet away. I will talk to her when I am walking to her when I am about to grab her she will run and lunge at me and try to bite me. Almost like she is attacking another horse! The 1st time she did this, I didn't even have a lead rope in my hand. The second, I had a lead with a chain. The third, she started to run, but I dodged out of the way. Every time an experienced horse person is there to help she doesn't do it!! It seriously is starting to feel like she knows what shes doing! What is going wrong? It is probably me. She has had some mindless abuse in her past from her previous owners.
