    But, what difference is made with different sized 'O' for a Loose ring snaffle?
    Just wondering, I use one on my mare (english) that is petite, but I saw a western girl using one that was probably an inche bigger.

    Thanks for posting this information. I haven't used a bit in years as I have been using a Dr. Cook's BB on my 2 horses that are broke. I currently have a 4 year old in training that I would like to show in 2012, so I have been researching my options for bitting purposes.

    Thanks again!

    What kind of metal do you think this bit is made out of?

    I'm glad this thread has helped as many people as it has!

    Ponyjocky - I would guess stainless steel, but I have no idea. You would have to contact the retailer or manufacturer.

    Question Best bit/cheek piece for a racy mare?

    So the single-jointed full cheek snaffle bit I have been riding my new girl in is a loaner and the loan has just been called in, unfortunately ... so I am wondering what I should replace it with given that she is a very willing (to go flatout in a straight line) 7 yo thoroughbred mare who has never had a rider on her back who wants her to slow it right down and listen.

    I want a mild bit (maybe frenchlink snaffle) and cheek piece (maybe D ring). Any thoughts? And is a bit keeper still useful with a D ring as well as the full cheek?

    Just wondering what the mildest, most effective combo would be. Her new job will be trail/beach horse, with company in the paddock but riding out alone.

    Great thread btw.
