    Okay so I am going to teach my pony Patch to drive I know the fundamentals of teaching it and I was just wondering do you have to use one of those driving bits or can you use any kind of bit?

    Mine use a o-ring snaffle. I would use whatever he responds to the best, as for show I have no clue.

    Oh thanks everyone because there was actually a great offer on driving bits but I wasn't sure if I needed one so thank you

    Everything we have and have ever had drives in a snaffle (not including when they race, just exercising during the day) so you don't HAVE to have a driving bit.
