What bit do ya'll use? I'm lookin for a bit for my mare who is almost 5 years old, she is pretty soft, n stops good. She rans in a snaffle or reg grazing curb bit. She does good in almost everything, so i'm trying to figoure out a good bit to use, the bit I was using was a curb with roller, n it was a good bit, loved it, Lolly did good in it, but noticed it started rubbing her mouth on the side..to small I guess..idk, So need some ideas???? I'm thinkin of just runnin her in D ring snaffle? Idk
Does she work well in it?
If so, why do you want to switch her? There's no rule in barrel racing that says you have to run in something else. USE WHAT WORKS on your horse.
Robyn Herring often runs her horse Happy in a plain ol' snaffle. (Please note that Happy is the famous stallion known as Fire Water on the Rocks.)

Anyway, just want to point out that you don't have to switch from your snaffle, if you horse works well in it.
