    PM received and answered. And, yes, I REALLY believe that bit is way too high in her mouth. I would put it down one or two holes, at least.

    Thank you, How do you judge where I bit should sit, for example, I've heard a lot of people use the 2 wrinkle rule, some 1, some even none. Is that all BS or there is an actually number or rule as to see how the bit should sit?

    I was taught just barely one wrinkle, but I put my fingers inside and make sure the bit isn't clanking down on the canines but resting on the bars , where it shoudl be. For some horses, that might be a large wrinkle or maybe two (that feels high to me) . For some, no wrinkle at all.

    I see more people with the bit way too high than those with the bit too low.

    Thank you, growing up I had always kept mine pretty low, either no wrinkles or barley 1 but then as I started taking english lessons I kept getting told my bit was too low, so I thought maybe it was an english thing to have the bit higher. Or that I was just wrong since I had taught myself and just put it where it looked more comfortable(and read in books since it was before the internet was popular). When I go on monday I'll adjust it!
