A bit question?

Okay so I just wanted to know what all bits you guys use with your horses?

And I know we have had this done a couple of times but new members might like to share their bits too and not be able to find the old threads so here goes

Do you use the same bit all the time?

I personally like to change it up all the time I don't like riding too many times in a row with the same bit guess I'm weird lol but I mostly use a french link loose ring snaffle bit

I ride my best horse in a half breed spade bit. It would send some members of this thread into convulsion to see it (I'll try to post a pic later) but it is a very mild bit for a horse that is ready for it. I ride other horses in a single jointed snaffle or a bosal or sometimes I use a bit called the junior cowhorse that is a slow action gag bit with a double jointed snaffle mouth and a copper roller. I have some other special purpose bits that I occasionally use but these are the ones that get the most use.

I use a single jointed loose ring mostly, but I use a french link dring on my mare. I do put a chain bit in my geldings mouth for fox hunting though, not for regular trails or ring work.

I use the same bit every day. Boring I know! I think that if your training is good, the horse should not need to be "sharpened up" by a bigger spur/bit/whip for a day. They should always be "sharp" in a mild bit or spur.
I ride in an 18mm double jointed aurigan loose ring snaffle.

Yes I agree anebel that a horse should not need to be sharpened up by a bigger bit or anything else my horse would go fine in any mouthpiece she seems fine with any bit and I have as light as possible hands so I like to switch it up sometimes I ride in a double jointed bit sometimes a single jointed bit and sometimes a mullen mouth bit most of the time just a plain old snaffle with different mild mouthpieces.

I use a sweet iron curb bit. It will rust over a period of time which helps the horse salvate over time. I was told by some cowboy that my family knows(a real cowboy and he is awesome) that they are good for some horses and it's mild.

I use lorenzo copper inlay loose ring on Kiara and lorenzo copper inlay eggbutt on Jemma (for some reason she hates loose ring, she prefers everything to be nice and stable :) ). Frankly I don't change the bits and don't see the big need for it as long as they work for me and my horses like them.

I don't change bits on my horses much either. I generally use a D-ring snaffle on my gelding, though I'll ride him in a shanked snaffle (more tom thumb styled) on his more uppity days. Misty, my son's pony, rides in an O-ring snaffle and Freyja goes bitless in an indian hack.

My horse uses a stubben gold wings wonder bit for riding in the open

And for regular everyday riding he is currently in a double jointed french link baucher
