    By westerner bit, do you mean a bit that is suitable for the western discipline? How is your horse trained? Does he/she neck rein? How soft is their mouth? What kinds of things do you do with them; showing, trails, cattle work, etc.?

    In another thread you are considering an English saddle. Are you planning to ride both English and Western? As smrobs asked, how was he trained and what do you want to do with him?

    A good way is to ask friends who may have spare bits to let you borrow to try different ones with your horse. If you are buying a new horse it's always good to ask what he goes best in. Keep in mind that sometimes they actually do better in something different. ;)

    Case in point, my Granddaugter's horse.. Previous owner said he went great in a TomThumb(western). He actually works great for her in a Kimberwick with a roller in the middle and also goes very nicely in a ported curb bit.
