debating on a new bit

I'm debating getting a new bit for my mini donk. He HATES the jointed snaffel & currently is doing well in a straight bar liverpool, but to me, it seems a bit heavy & I'm wanting something a little more refined. I'm currently looking at either a liverpool mullen mouth, a liverpool arch mouth or a liverpool low port. Sugestions?? These are the ones I'm considering

Personally... im not a fan of the liverpool bits... but I do like a nice jointed snaffle. If I had to choose though... I would definitely go with an arch mouth liverpool :)

If a liverpool is to heavy what about a half cheek mullen mouth?

I guess I have stayed with the liverpool because that what I was taught to use. Now I have to rethink things even more!! LOL

The half cheeks are perfectly acceptable, even for showing, and much lighter.
I even think they look better on a little equine, some bits look so big on the little guys.

As usually, Taffy, you are so much better at knowing what's best! And those bits are less expensive also!

Taffy, I'm really leaning towards taking a 4 day weekend (when the weather is nice) & hidding out in Missouri (hint, hint) LOL
