As long as he is liking the O ring I would stick with it. The design encourages the horse to pick it up as it is "loose" lol I would love to see what mouth piece is like. I bet it's not too narrow. There are a lot of horses that do not care for thick bits, btw. Just stick with a gentle mouth piece. No twisted wires etc..

I am going to stick with the o-ring for now, I just wanted yalls opinions.

I would call the o-ring's thickness about what is normal... not too thick, but not too thin either. I hate any type of twisted wire bits... my cousin has a mare that tey use a twisted wire snaffle on, and I hate it but it's the ONLY bit that horse will use. Lol. I want to keep my colt in a regular snaffle like he's in now, because he's so responsive...
