Standardbred rescue

I recently (about 7 weeks) rescued a standardbred which I found out after was 22 years old and blind in one eye. He has a sweet personality and we are working on putting weight on him.
I am wondering what is the best bit or bitless bridle to use on his would be and the best saddle since he has a very high whither. I would like to transition him to western...would an aussie saddle be the right way to go?

Really depends on the horse. My old standardbred went fine in a snaffle or a bosal. As long as the saddle fits they really don't care what kind. She gaited better in saddles that gave her shoulders plenty of room. Standardbreds don't come in standard sizes, gotta use what fits.

High whithers

Thanks Sue.. I read that the Aussie saddles have plenty of room for horses with high whithers...which he does!..I may try one of those!
