I swear by my dogbone mouth Jr. Cowhorse and snaffle.

I also want to buy a Sweet Six bit with just a smooth snaffle mouth.

I have a really touchy horse, so light bits are my thing right now.

My rope mare goes in a mild correction bit.

Annie runs in a little s hack. But when at home practicing or tuning she's always in a o ring twistest snaffle

Jasper runs and works in an o ring combo. But im wanting to try a simplicity bit on him. :) (when trail riding jasper I like to put the little s hack on him. )

My two year old is being trained in a snaffle.

Eggbutt French-link and eggbutt Dr Bristol. Both do the job fine with Brock.

With my QH I started him in a snaffle, moved to a mechanical hack, then settled on a c curb. He was ridden Western.

My pony came to me in a curb but it was pinching his cheeks. I used an Argentine snaffle on him and it worked great. He was ridden Western.

My Arab was ridden in a homemade indian hackamore. He was ridden in a variety of saddles, including Western, English, endurance, and no saddle at all.

I ordered two bits for my new horse cause I'm not sure what will work best: a regular snaffle and a double jointed snaffle. We will be training him English (dressage).
