I appreciate you're advice Mom2Pride, however this is a new horse to me, in beginning stages of training, and he's only been trail ridden up to this point. He's rather lazy on turns and has a tough mouth. The snaffle is fine for trails but it's not working on the drums. My fiance raised him from a colt but he's never done anything with him other than ride trails, he shows TWH's and Storm is a Quarter Horse so he didn't have much use for him other than that. I've never had any exp with a Million dollar bit. I may have phrased my question wrong, what I meant ask was does anyone have any experience with the Martha Josey bit as it pertains to turns?
