I don't understand why you want me to try a copper bit on him? He was fine in his plain eggbutt Dr. Bristol when I rode him at his previous home. He was not fine with a full cheek copper snaffle. Every time I touched the reins he got upset. I don't think that was the coppers fault. My previous horse loved the full cheek copper bit so that is what I had in my bridle and figured I would try it out on my new horse. The copper may make my new horse accept a different bit better, but some horses just hate copper, I don't know whether it was the copper or full cheek, but the way he acted it seemed to be the full cheek when it touched him. So I'm not going to get a copper bit at all. That's not what he is used to. I think I am going to try the Oval mouth, and if he likes it, great if not, maybe the next one will have copper on it. I will report back with results. I'm so glad that I did pick out a bit that many seem to like. We will see if Cash, my new horse, likes it or not. This is his picture. Not very good because it was taken with my phone
.... but he is cute.
