    That should say I took the first summer slow, not that I hadn't.


    I hadn't thought of it being a learnt behavior might very well be. Since I got her I've been finding holes in her training and bad habits and slowly have been patching them up, maybe she hasn't even been taught about excepting any contact. Ugh just another thing to work on.


    $40 isn't a lot to spend on a bit, I just can't afford to buy two or three that won't work, $80 to $120 is a lot right now.


    She's having her teeth looked at soon, so I'll talk to the vet.


    Thanks

    You didn't say where you keep your horse. If you board, I bet you could borrow some bits from other boarders. The trick is to ask somebody for help and let them wax on about how to train your horse. But, it's worth bending your ears to find out a better bit, and then, you'll only size the bit and order one.
    Speaking of, usually horses need at 4 3/4" width bits. Arabs take a little smaller, heavy headed horses need larger. It could be that your bit doesn't fit the width of your horse's mouth.
