Best bit for beginner barrel racer

I am a beginner barrel racer and I was wondering what type of bit is the best for me and my horse. She does have experience in barrels and poles but I don't. Which is the best bit? Thanks a million!

A snaffle bit of any kind. The type of rings doesn't matter. :)

Welcome to the forum.

Whatever bit she runs comfortably in. If she runs good in a snaffle, great use that. If she needs a little curb like a jr cow horse, use that. It all depends on the horse and the riders hands.

Use whatever bit she is used to. The rider has to be the one to adapt to the horse; not the other way around.

Did you just purchase her?

What bit does she currently run barrels and poles in?

I agree with Beau.

Just remember to keep soft hands in everything you do, especially going slow, so your muscle memory will kick in when you're going fast and you can stay as soft as possible.
