    I use a loose ring sweet iron snaffle. Changing bits isn't an option because she goes really badly in anything other that a sweet iron. She fights me and tries to get the bit between her teeth :-/ The loose rings don't touch her mouth at all - i've made sure of that because I know that they can be a problem in some horses. I'm beginning to think its jsut because I'm riding her a lot and the skin isn't conditioned to it. Let me know if there's anything else you think of

    Mouthpeice material

    If you have a metal bit, I would reccomend trying a Happy Mouth type rubber/mullen mouthpeice. They tend to be thicker, but softer.
