Went to my LTS and they only had ONE bit similar to those you posted, but unfortunately it was 100 dollars and I'm not QUITE ready to commit to a bit of that price without finding out if it is what we need. There is a tack exchange this weekend at the state fair grounds, hopefully I can find one there more within my budget!

I bought a Jr. Cowhorse by Pro. Choice through World Roping Supply for about $35. They're very easy to resell if it doesn't work too. I'm on a bit selling page on Facebook where people are always begging for Jr. Cowhorse bits, and when one is posted, they go fast.

Beau gave you some amazing advice!

My advice would be: drop your stirrups a hole or two, if they are too short, your leg will tend to get behind you and that will throw you forward. Keep your shoulders back, and get your feet in front of you. If you are going to the horn, don't pull on it, but rather push your butt down in your saddle. Here are some videos of my own that might show this:
