Bit for horse with very small palate?
Casey I have discovered has a very low palate. And, none of the bits I have used have actually fitted apparently, and I feel awful about it. The joint and/or the sides of the bit near the cheek piece were to wide and thick and pressed up on her mouth. I tried my herm sprenger loose ring snaffle, kimberwicke, copper egg-butt, and full cheek snaffle, which is all of my bits I could find. They all have one joint. I am going to try and dig out my kimberwicke high port, but I doubt that will fit.. So bitless until I can find a bit that fits! Any recommendations? She is a 4 3/4 bit size, but I suppose if the bit only came in 5 inch I could put my bit guards on it..
Before I get any comments on how much of an idiot I am.. I know what I did wrong and I can't go back to day one and fix it... Thanks
Oh yeah, I only use a bit 1-2 times a week when I do dressage or if Casey is being.. Casey. I would like some sort of snaffle, and I don't really want to use the thinnest bit out there.. Lol.. What about a french link snaffle anyone tried that for the low palated horses?
