After recently switching to jumpers, we changed my horse to a 2-ring, double jointed elevator bit. I was just wondering what you guys thought of it, so feel free to share your thoughts and opinions!
I'm a little weary of it, sometimes my horse will shake his head, or take a minute to open his mouth for it, but my trainer claims he's just irritated that I have more control. I just want to make sure it isn't a severe bit or anything. I've tried a couple google searches but didn't come up with much. I figured that since it's a happy mouth it's at least comfy for him to hold in his mouth, but I want to be sure it isn't causing discomfort.
One last thing, on the left side corner of his mouth he has a teeny tiny rub mark that looks like a raw sore. I started putting fura-zone on it but was wondering what could be causing this. He has rubber bit guards so...?
Any comments are appreciated! Thanks!
