So he is improving by leaps and bounds and yet you are questioning the bit????
When I took him into my possesion I changed over to a regular snaffle and he was the same no vices at all so I don't know what they could be covering. This past year I hjave had a horrible time with weight issues and farrier issues so I moved him back to the barn and they have made him a new horse again.he is gaining weight like crazy and their farrier had made a big difference in his feet . I put him back into training with them to get his gait back the way it should be due to feet issues and so forth and they put him back on that bit and istructed me to use it as well..Seeing that they know way more then me and have helped me with him I do what they say. But I just wasnt sure why everyone hates them so much
