I usually default to a single or french link snaffle but due to teeth issues a rubber mullen in this case was the only way to go......this is a large horse with a large mouth that can easily handle the size of the rubber mullen.
We did actually start out with a single snaffle but when teeth issues popped up we switched to the mullen.
This girl was already trained in the snaffle from the ground to steer, leg yield, move her front end over, half pass, whoa, steer etc.......so switching to the mullen while getting her going under saddle was no big deal.
