The guy I bought her from had only had her for about 8 months. His uncle raises and trains them in Tuscaloosa, AL. She was given to him as a gift. He really wasnt very educated where horses are concerned- was still learning himself. The bit he had when I arrived was a copper snaffle bit (Tom Thumb I think) he told me that was not her normal bit, just an extra he had.. She did not seem real happy with it with but she still rode and acted well. When my husband and I went the next day to bring her home he actually had another bit, just a small simple looking snaffle. She seemed to like it better. -- Today, since my post, I called and bought his saddle which I really liked, very comfy and fit her well, and the blanket, bits, bridle...basically all he had. I will pick up other things as I learn more about the TWH and what works well with this breed.
Does anyone have any suggestions/opinions of a good bit to use for the TWH?
