It will depend on what size you are looking for. My percheron wears a 7" mouthpiece. I personally love Myler bits. I currently was riding my percheron in a d-ring copper roller single jointed snaffle....only because when I adopted her, it was the only bit I could find in that size that was decent and wasn't a driving bit.
I have been on the search for a new one. I wanted a double jointed type snaffle. I have found a Kimberwick that I just got yesterday. It has the half moon losenge in the middle, which I really liked before on a snaffle. Although it is not a snaffle, I think she will react nicely since she was driven in the past and is used to the other pressure this bit will create. So, I will be trying it out today to see how she reacts. I will ground drive her in it and then ride her in the arena.
So, if your horse needs a 7" bit, you will probably need to special order it. Every so often a bit will pop up that size on the internet etc. No riding bits in catalogues are that size. Bits on draft sites usually are geared towards driving. I am also very picky with not using cheap metals. If this Kimberwick does not work for my perch, I will special order from Myler.
