Differences between these bits

Pozzi 3 Piece Smooth Noseband - The Tack Stop

Pozzi Smooth Snaffle Noseband - The Tack Stop

2 piece, or 3 piece? What is going to be the differences between these two?

I'm currently using this bit...But it just it "too much" for my mare. She can go down a few notches in this department. I use a Myler snaffle for basic work. But at shows, she need something that she will respond to quicker.

I've been considering a chain mouthpiece as well. I have extremely light hands.

Perhaps something along these lines...But, I do like having a noseband on the bit, just incase I need that extra pressure.

my trainer uses that last bit on her 6 yr old barrel baby and that mare loves that bit, she was very picky and hated everything else they tried till this. It is worth a shot :]

I do like the looks of it. And I have nothing against a large link chain mouthpiece. I've ridden horses in them before with great success.

I guess it's just a matter of picking one to try and see if she likes it. Just not sure which one...

The difference between the first two are just tongue pressure. I'd rather have a 3 piece because that's just me, but I've never had a horse be picky over mouth pieces.

Chain link bits are actually pretty soft, they form to the horses mouth and alot of horses like them. The site your looking at is where most of our bits come from, the description on the side usually fits them well. Depending on what your needing.

Thank you. I will probably go with the Three piece Pozzi, or the Carol Goosetree chain. I have a Jr Cow horse with 5" shanks and none of my horses like it. But have other bits with Three pieces and have no problems with them. I've never tried a chain with my personal horses.

I can see where this is going...Getting 2, or 3, new bits to play with.

I myself prefer a 3-piece mouthpiece most of the time. I feel you get more bend/flex in a bit like that, versus having the "nutcracker effect" with a 2-piece mouthpiece.

However, I did just get a Carol Goosetree Simplicity bit for Red for barrels and poles and I love it on him!
