Bit for lungeing

I never really lunged any of my horses before execpt for a quick spin to relax my green brokes before riding. But now lungeing is all I can really do with my 29 yr old mare who foundered 2 years ago b/c she's forever off on her front right. So....I started lunging with my bridle and a snap on convertor...what is the best bit to use? I'm thinking snaffle. Opinions?

I have to say something along the lines of an o-ring snaffle or a full cheeck snaffle

I would say snaffle because a shanked bit would always be applying pressure because of leverage

I agree with a simple snaffle... I wouldn't go with any harsh bits because if she spooks for some reason and pulls back, it won't end well.
Sorry your mare foundered :(

D or loose ring snaffle would suffice :)
