Anyone got a GKPI Blue Meanie and want to stop it folding its arms across its belly? Here's a quick description of a successful bridle modificationhttp://youtu.be/nhbRmveUMhw
A. Attach the line from the the horn to the thumb at the inner side of the thumb, not the front. This stops the thumb (hence the rest of the hand) from twisting forwards and inwards in light wind.
Also move the line between the thumb and the horn about 12" to the rear of the horn
B. Add a line between fingers 2 and 3 to pull palm forward a bit. Make this line the same length as the finger lines and attached to the same collection point. This prevents the palm from cupping backwards and fingers curling forwards.
C. Add a wrist line to prevent middle of arm blowing rearwards
Since doing this to my Meanie, it has never folded its arms again - in all wind strengths, light, medium or strong!
