Close-up of LG on Escalante..his story

When I got Escalante he was a 5 year old stud, who had bred. He looks courageous and imposing and behaves quite self-assured, but when you watch him a bit on the pasture, he does not feel comfortable in the role of leader. He started under saddle and was a beautiful ride because he naturally carries himself very  nicely and comes easy from behind. He has a tendency though, to curl up behind the bit so to avoid contact. The emphasis of our work is to get him to stretch and accept the bit and to relax and communicate. I think we have made great progress, since we are now working on left and right bend in a straight line, and outside and inside bends around corners. He is still very sensitive in the mouth, but if handled gingerly, he is a pleasure to ride and school...I like the feel of the LG and there is no noticeable difference in the contact, yet the idea that is mouth is quietly closed is a beautiful one for me and I think that the next videos will be more revealing as to the positive and negative points of this particular bitless bridle.
