    Thanks! She is great for her age! She still has quite a bit of spunk! She only has a minor heart murmur, so you can't run her too much.

    This bit is a loose-ring snaffle... It's easy on the horse's mouth and great for long rides.

    Dreamer is gorgeous! She looks like a real sweetie. I love older Arab mares, they're so great.

    For the record, the bit in those pictures is not a loose-ring snaffle, at all. It's definitely a curb bit of some kind (it has shanks). I'm inclined to think that it's an [US] Tom Thumb but it's hard to tell for sure.

    I know the first one is a curb bit.... But the last two I know for sure were some type of shanked snaffle.

    There's no such thing as a shanked snaffle.
    Any bit with shanks is a curb. A snaffle is any unshanked bit with a 1:1 ratio of pressure (as in, you pull with one pound of pressure, the horse feels one pound of pressure).
    A curb is any bit where the ratio is greater than 1:1. The shanks multiply any pressure on them by however long the shank is. So, on a bit with a five inch shank, when you pull with a pound of pressure, the horse feels 5 pounds of pressure, pull with 2 pounds, horse feels 10 pounds of pressure, etc.
    It's a very common misconception, don't worry!
    It's mostly due to the fact that TT's are sold as "Tom Thumb 'Snaffles'" because of the mouthpiece (which a lot of people call a "snaffle mouth"). They really should be called "Tom Thumb Curbs" though!
    Hopefully that all makes sense. :)

    Anyway, sorry for taking over your thread with bit talk!
