Best Bit?

Hi,

I was wondering is a Myler Comfort Snaffle would be a good bit for a beginner driving pony? I have her in a Happy mouth loose ring snaffle at the moment.
I was also wondering if a Myler comfort snaffle would be good for an OTTB? He is in a Dee ring snaffle.

I was also wondering what would be the best Western Myler bit for an OTTB?

Thanks!

No one can really tell you what the "best bit" is. Myler makes some excellent quality bits, and the comfort snaffle is a good one, but it really depends on your horse's personal preference, training, and your hands.

Well, could you suggest what you think would be a good western bit for an off the-track TB? I want a bit that will help him "reach for the bit". He doesn't really know how to collect. He is still learning so I wanted a level 1 bit that is comfortable. My coach has a Myler bit(forget what kind) and she really likes it. All of the horses that use it really like it. But I think it's a level 2...
I wouldn't call my hands "soft" nor would I call them harsh, just kind of in between.

If he works well in his current D-ring, don't change it. If he works better in the Myler snaffle, switch to that. If there is no reason to ever ride him in a curb bit, don't, but if you want to eventually get him in one, get his training well underway in the snaffle, first, then transfer over to a curb. Myler makes some very nice curbs, as well. This one would follow the comfort snaffle nicely:

Your trainer would be the best source of information.

He/she would know your horse's preferences and reactions.
