Bit for a driving/riding draft

So I have only had Snowbird about a week and prior only ridden traditional western QHs so I have always ridden a solid shank curb bit. Snowbird was primarily a pulling horse before I had her. I have to ride her "two handed" because she doesnt neck rain very well and I like to ride one handed

Just curious if anyone has transitioned a driven horse to a riding neck raining horse and what bit they prefered.

Yep. Wasn't much of a transition, really--just started riding him. He ran right through an O-ring snaffle, and at the time there wasn't a great selection of draft-sized bits, we we ended up using a curved-shank Tom Thumb on him. But there are way better options available now: Bits
