Changing bits and Team Sorting

I'm making the change from the snaffle.  I've started working Jessie in a Tom Thumb style bit.  I think it will help me become a better rider by refining my cues.  It's something new and exciting.  One of my biggest concerns is where to go after the Tom Thumb.

We also did some team sorting yesterday.  I worked on two teams.  One was with Ranae and Julie (another Downunder Horsemanship follower) and one was a pickup team with two experienced, competitive gals on very nice horses.  We tied for 2nd and had a ride off and won!  It was a very interesting experience.  I'm getting to publish the podcast with a lot more details, so if you want to listen to the story you can find it on our Facebook page or subscribe in iTunes.
