Ask Emily Moffitt : I have a young mare who is very mouthy coming into jumps. Do you have any tips on keeping her controlled without using any hand as she is very sensitive?

Hello Casey,

I have a few horses that have the same problem. I've found that there isn't much you can do other than to try and find the bit they are most comfortable with and to try and leave their mouth alone as much as possible! Try and talk to her and use her seat to control her.
