So I have changed bits. I have gone from an eggbutt snaffle to a french link loose ring snaffle and my horse seems to be much softer now, I really like the change. The thing is, it doesn't look right.
The bit is 5 inches long (same as his old bit) but looks shorter in his mouth. Also I have held the two bits up together and they are exactly the same length.
It also looks higher up in his mouth, not pulling his lips back too much, but wrinkling them more than the old bit. I have tried losening the cheek pieces but then it hangs too low in his mouth and he was trying to move it when it was that low (as if it was uncomfortable).
So my question is, is it ok the way it is? Or should I punch new wholes in the cheek pieces to get the perfect fit?
Tell me what you thing and if you notice anything else let me know please!
(thats his flash strap hanging down btw)
