Looking for a bit for a tender mouth

I recently got a new horse and I am having trouble finding her a good bit to work and run in. She has a very soft mouth and I am not sure what is out there that works on tender mouthed horses. Any advice welcome!! Thanks!

Why not just use a snaffle?

Snaffle is good. If you need a touch more control but a soft bit I might go to a draw gag with a smooth mouthpiece:

You could also try a tender touch.
