you may want to try a shadow roll, it forces the horse to lower his head to see over the fur. You can race with it in the US. Or if you think his mouth may be sore, try a bit lifter, it will raise the bit up off of the bottom of the mouth which is an area that can ofter get bruised if the horse has been fighting his rider.

Have trained thoroughbreds for 30 odd years. Have been a licensed trainer for that long of time. I continue to train my race horses and thoroughly enjoy every day.

Experience


Experience: Licensed trainer for over 30 yrs. Have had lots of winners in all different types of races - from bottom claimers to top quality stakes winners. My best money winner was Aristocratic Cross (multiple stakes winner). My best claiming horse was Navajo Family, winner of 12 races in one year. I still enjoy racing a modest stable of horses each year.
