side reins, or otherwise?

Victoria, TX(Zone 9b)


Harley 2011 goals.. any ideas? I am goal oriented, and having a plan keeps me motivated...

How do you suggest I build topline? With Ransom, I did side reins on the longeline, 15min on ride days, 30min on longe only days. I know Harley needs muscle memory, so I am wondering what everyone else would do.

Got to talk to Dale Myler himself yesterday! I filled out a questionnaire about bitting & he called me! We talked for about 20min. He wants me to look at the website, and consider the combination 04 bit. I will look at it... description from him is "it pressures nose and poll and curb before it hits bit/mouth. Much like a halter before the bit engages." Again, looking for input here, too.. (Harley's been going in a sprenger aurigan loose ring french link.)

Getting ready to take Ransom home this morning. Leaving town tomorrow super early for holidays... too much time away from my boys..
