Okay, this is probably a dumb question, but I'm still fairly new to horses, so just thought I'd ask:
I bought this bit from Myler
My question is, do you use a curb chain with it? I have been, since the lady at the store said the curb chain is essentially my "brakes" for the horse, but I have read you don't use a curb with a snaffle & was kinda confused.
Also, is there a lot of difference between loose ring, dee ring & eggbutt?
BTW: this bit (above) works great with my mustang.
With my Walker, I used this one
But when she ran away with me one time, my neighbor put her in something like this
Except, where the curb should be there is a piece of metal like a mullen mouth (I'll take a picture of it tomorrow). I hate it because it looks painful, but he has more experience with horses, so I let him use it. Thankfully, she is on maternity leave, so it didn't get used much, but I think I will just put her back in a snaffle & see how it goes.
