    Ohh okay yeah I can see why you guys wouldnt like that.... I've seen other post saying TT were nasty and I was like hmmm but seeing the bit that you guys call a TT it makes sense.....

    Maybe just to clarify in other posts in the future, the one with shanks should be called the American Tom Thumb or the ATT. Just to keep confusion to a minimum.

    Say, anyone like Mullen pelhams? I was going to buy one, but wasn't sure if a ported Kimblewick or mullen mouth pelham was the way to go..

    Sunny, so many people will tell you what they like rather then what the horse likes. There are a lot of bits that I really like the appearance of but they don't work for my horse.

    If you need to make a change, see if you can borrow one of each to try. I have a barn full of different bits that I've collected over the years but ultimately only use two bits.

    This is what I would call a tom thumb:


    The first one is a Fulmer snaffle. They are both snaffles. Neither of these are tom thumb bits. They are not curb bits.
