Yeah I really like that one too. It looks like it'd feel nicer in MY mouth, so nicer in my horse's mouth too lol! Though they are VERY similar in thicknesses and the first is more uniform thickness rather than slightly narrower closer to the link.
What I have decided is to try the first one, and if he doesn't love it then try the second.. and if he doesn't love that one then keep on trying different bits until we find one. But I think he'll like this bit that I've ordered.

But that is just my opinion and every horse if completely different with bits, you just have to experiment! :)
