I'm wanting to switch out of the Kimberwick I'm using on my very forward mare. My riding isn't advanced as she is used to so my trainer had me switch from the Eggbutt snaffle I had her in to the Kimberwick so she'd stop running away with me and I could concentrate on improving my riding and not just speed control (tug of war) with her.
So even if I'm not quite ready to switch, I will be one day and I'm wanting to know the bit to get that will actually be legal for dressage (lower level, of course) and provide as much brakes as possible.
The Baucher has been recommended to me and I liked the Herm Sprenger B one with the 45 degree angle center piece but I've heard it doesn't have as much/any leverage compared to the standard one due to the lower location of the bars. But if it is the Baucher I should get, which brand?
