I'd also like to add, how LOVELY it is that on this forum, everyone reads and responds w/o getting rude or snippy!!!! There's a few myspace horse groups that I'm a member of and I barely reply anymore because it all turns into a heated debate where someone calls the other one's horse a mule, and the other one chimes in with your a bad rider....blech. Personal attacks are dumb. This was an awesome thread b/c I learned something too - it's not just the bit on this horse, or the training, but seems to be the FOCUS. Totally changed my point of view on what would work to keep his attention ;)

Ditto!! Although I might not get too angry if someone called Leo a mule, he can certainly act like one sometimes!! lol

Ya, like Toosleepy said, use a Hackamore of a bosal. I have my horse under a Hackamore, and he does SOOOOOOOOO much better than with a ported bit. That bit looks a lil harsh, but i don't know?

I tried him in a new bit today and he seemed to do well. We jumped in it and he felt really soft, too. It's a comfort snaffle from Myler bits, here it is:

I really like that bit, it will be so much softer on his mouth than that other one. I hope you have much better luck with him. I would love to see some pictures. :)

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Nice bit. I like that. I guess he didn't go crazy like his trainer said he does??? I hope this works out for you. Remember to work on training, esp now with this bit that hopefully won't be such a distraction for him as the other one.
