The owner didn't have his tom thumb there that day. She gives lessons and is in the habit of putting a horse in a snaffle for a kid, but she and my trainer talked quite a bit about bits. He does take a mild port correction bit. Both owner and trainer said that the Myler my daughter is currently using would be a good bit for him. It's a level 2, short shanks, mild port.

Good luck and like I always say, you can always like them or dislike them in the add but until you get face to face you should not make your final judgment.
I learned this ^^^ the hard way.
Sierramms, I'm stealing your second sentence for my signature.

Live to ride. Ride to live.
