    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 http://iowavalleycarriage.com/catalog/29

    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?

    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!
