That's me in 1981, already exploring bitless options on my first-ever ride. My dad emailed me the photo this morning with a note that it was taken in Diamond Lake, Oregon, and the horse was called Polka Dot. I don't remember ever seeing the photo before, and I certainly can't recall ol' Polka Dot...but he seems to have made a lasting impression on me.
Speaking of emailed photos of bitless horses, meet Fritha. This young, half-draft mare and her person, Kessira, are the lucky recipients of a Crazy Ropes Indian bosal/halter combo they won it in the Best of the Barb Wire Contest last November. I'm jealous of the fancy-stitching on the noseband... methinks I'll have to help Aaruba keep up with the Joneses!
