Just because you got me itching to do it, I am currently working on a thread for that exact reason when I should be sleeping . Wow, there is a lot to sort through and explain .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

wild_spot, if you put it on the snaffle ring then it is a snaffle, just like the baucher or the wilkie. I ever said that the names correctly described them, just that overhere they are known as that.

Thank you guys for working on the western aspect. I am not an complete idiot but when it comes to what to use for shows, I am illiterate. A very big thank you to everyone that has worked through all the research.

YAY!!!! Somewhere between 21 and 35 signatures, I was granted chat access!!! Now out to be with all the animals

So I've got question. There's a snaffle at my lesson barn where the bit itself is a single joint but the cheek piece is shaped like a "P". It's not a cheek piece that you have listed. At the barn we call it the "P" snaffle. Is there an actual name for this cheek piece?

I don't currently have any pictures, if you need some I can get some.

Yeah, that's the one. Can it be used for riding though?

Yes it can be used for riding. I'm not sure why you would though, the full cheek snaffle would be much better for ridden purposes.
