Well, one of the problems is that she was not trained properly. A TT should really never be used in the first place, but it should especially never be used as a breaking bit, even though it's sold that way. She should have been broke to ride in a snaffle. Do you have any snaffles at home to try on her?

I will have to ask my husband what she was broke with that was 19 years ago and I wasnt around yet. LOL. We don't have a snaffle, but I will try one of the ones recommended. If I remember correctly I thought he said ours was snaffle. LOL. I don't know one from another im still learning all this stuff.

at least you are making the effort to learn more. Just wanted to give you some kudos for that. ;)

I agree with the full cheek snaffle recommendation personally.

I'm inclined to say its the rider who needs more training, not the horse - if the horse has been ridden the last 19 years and only throws her head with you.

A mild snaffle bit might help some, but chances are you just need more instruction in terms of how to ride and how to control your hands and your horse.

I agree with you 110% I know I need experiance. I have only been around these horses for two years and im pretty much learning on my own or what I have learned on here or in books. My husband is great with them he jumps on and has no problems, but he knows more then me, but has a hard time helping me out (he's a guy what can I say)

Look at the bit link in my signature just for your own general knowledge. The bit you posted is called a Tom Thumb "snaffle"--but snaffle it is not, by definition.
