    I've used a smooth d-ring snaffle, a snaffle with a ported mouthpiece (have absolutely NO idea what it was or why, lol), a 5" 3-piece Reiner with a copper roller (currently in use for ST), and a Jr. Cow (smooth or twisted single jointed mouthpiece). ST can't stand a single-joint, so I probably won't be putting her in the Jr cow, but I bought the 3-piece Reiner with the copper roller just for her..she likes to chew her bits to..well, bits, lol. She now just messes with the roller, thank goodness. She's extremely supple in it, and I'm not sure why, but I can raise her shoulder in a turn great with it.

    SH...I've heard great things about them, I'm just hoping Sassy thinks it is as great as I do! :P

    And the boyfriend will be buying me a tack set for Christmas that has shortened cheeks for a Gag bit..didn't even mean to but I'm glad that it will work out that way! >

    I've riden Sassy once so far in the simplicity bit, and I really like it!! I'd almost put it at a lighter bit than a snaffle...it uses poll pressure before any mouth pressure, and she responded sooo well..I was able to get her in a nice, relaxed but rounded frame with a very light touch, something I could never get out of her in a snaffle without fighting her. She did through her head a few times at it, dadgum pre-teen agnst if you ask me :P But she worked great with it..her breaks seemed a tad sloppy but that was just being over critical:P

    Sometimes horses just really respond to that poll pressure. I love it!
