I don't ride in the same bits, I have different bits for everything. For riding and training I prefer snaffles, I may use some light bits like Easy 5, Half Wonder, Jr. Cowhorse, Tender Touch and a nice little dutton bit that I just bought (fell off the BHA bandwagon! UGH).
Each horse has a specific bit for running, and some horses have a bit for warming up and tuning aswell.
I find that when I switch bits up it keeps the horses on their toes and responding well.
Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.
