I think it is really a preference call....I use O-rings for everything really, from breaking colts, starting on barrels, to tuning the finished barrel horse in. I am sure some people have a specific reason but I just like them better.
And some horses like to lean or take hold of a D-Ring because of the fixed rings, but can't really do that with the O because the bit is constantly being moved with the rings. (If that made any sense at all I will be amazed lol)
Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
