AQHA Western Bits for a horse who hates curbs?
Ok, I've been reading a lot about bits, but cannot seem to find what I'm looking for. I'm hoping some experienced AQHA show riders can help.
Our mare (age 8) HATES curb bits with a fiery passion. She will throw he head and be a complete PITA on a curb. We've tried just about every type out there from solid to jointed. If it hthat port of any size, she hates it. She is fine in a jointed or dog bone style bit.
I may be reading the rules wrong, but in Western Classes are curb bits required for horses over a certain age? My daughter (who is the rider) is 10 and in the Novice Youth division. Kitten tries to be soft in the mouth, but she's still learning.
What bits would you recommend that are legal to show in?
