Tom thumb Snaffle. We sometimes call these pony bits. Where I live, these are THE most popular bits.
Lovely bits - great for kids ponies as the cheeks help with steering

I do agree. I ride my pony in one, she's never had any other bit in her mouth (successfully. One time my friend tried to ride her in a full cheek snaffle... biggest.hissy.fit. From the second it entered her mouth. XD)

It's a pro Trainer with copper mouth and rings - It's reletively mild - It has a little bit of extra leverage so that the mouth will piece will slide up in the mouth - there is no poll pressure until the mouthpiece meets the back teeth - which is not likely.

Bit for soft mouth?

This is wonderful information! We tried a Myler Kimberwick on my new mare (7 y/o Arabian), and she does not care for it. She's very soft in the mouth, and neck reins nicely. She responded to very light reins with this bit but we want to try something else. Her previous owner said she used a Tom Thumb, but I want to try something softer like a Myler Comfort Snaffle.

Thanks for all this information! If anyone has recommendations for me, send 'em my way. I'm not married to Myler, so I'm happy to check out other brands.

Thank you :)
