    bit help

    Ok my horse needs a new bit because all I have a rusted ones and I can't stand rust. But I also need one that wont hurt his tung because his old owners used a thin bit and it cut in to his tung and it hurts him every sooo often. But I also need one that will be good for barrel racing. Any suggestions????

    Bits usually rust purposefully. The horses enjoy the taste and it makes them salivate.

    I prefer a rusted bit anyway ; 'cause it does taste better to them.
    Anyway, that shouldn't hurt him.

    What about just replacing the one that you have with a new one with a thicker mouth piece.

    Have you heard of Myler bits? They have a patented design for tongue relief.

    I have heard good things about the Myler bits as well all though, I have never tried one. From what I've seen with barrel racers, is that they think they need to get a special bit for their horse. I am running my 10 yr old QH on barrrels in a twisted wire snaffle. If I were you I would go with the easies bit you can find but still have control, every horse is different. I alwas borrow bits from friends to try and find one that works before I go out and put down lots of money on bits that may not work (around here, you can't return bits) if you re interested, I have 2 wonder bits that im selling. One has a smooth mouth and the other is twisted wire. PM if you are interested. Im selling them cheap because I don't have a need for them.
