    Hey not sure if this was already ask or answered. . .lots of pages
    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!

    I really enjoyed this thread. I am riding my young mare in a full cheek snaffle but without a bit keeper, hadn't heard of them before reading this. I will defo check it out, thanks :)

    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.
