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.
