Hard to tell, but this one might not be quite a fat?

I think the one I posted is actually the skinniest I've found. A friend with a similar small-mouthed horse had a lot of issues and said she used this bit:
4060688 - Sprenger KK Ultra 18mm mouthpiece > Bits over 6" > Home > The Horse Bit Shop

However, that one is listed as 18mm thick and the one I posted is even smaller at 11mm. I think I'm convinced to order that one and see what happens.

Try it. It sucks sometimes to have to spend alot a money trying things and a lot of them don't work out but I have to say my $40 and my 360 mile round trip for mine was well worth it in the end.

I'm pretty sure it's the same bit. The URL would seem to indicate so, even though it doesn't seem to be important enough to include the brand in the description.

Its the same style bit but not the same brand which isnt a big deal. Especially if your not 100% sure it will work. I tried it on several of our other horses and they too seem to like it much better than a plain o ring snaffle.

OK, I ordered it and paid the expedited shipping to get it here sometime next week. I'm very excited and hopeful about this bit!

I think it actually is the same brand. If you look up at the top, it says "JP Korsteel" in the URL. I couldn't find any other brand indicated, so I'd assume it's the same one. Plus, the description is very similar and I can't find that type of bit with any other brand online.

I buy pony bits for my arab, since she has the tiny mouth problem too. She wears a 4.5 inch bit. She likes a double-jointed type like you are buying. It doesn't matter to her if I use a lozenge type or a french link. However, she does not like the loose ring snaffles since her lips are thick so just to warn you; if your horse still does not like the bit you can try using it with bit guards on the sides.

His mouth isn't narrow, but the top and bottom are close together. Thus, the issue is the bit hitting the roof of the mouth. I was really hesitant to get a loose ring snaffle and just gave in when she said that's all they had and the bit was so thick she couldn't imagine pinching (I still think she was incorrect). However, I'm returning the bit anyway because I think it's going to be way to thick for his mouth and I think the French link, since it's flat, may still cause problems. I just ordered the D-ring double jointed snaffle with a copper peanut (That's a plus because I did want copper!) that I posted above. I think it's a lot more likely to work than the one I bought at the tack shop.
