I want to get my 4 year old out of a snaffle. But I also want to train her for barrels and I hear that it's best to keep them in a snaffle for the training.
I rode her in this bit once this fall, and hated it, she just wouldn't relax.

(The snaffle piece rotates)
I'm debating between these bits:
AHE Black Steel 5 252-790=
Reinsman Junior Cow Horse Dog Bone Snaffle with Copper Roller Bit 349=
I'd really like to use a Jr. Cow Horse, because I can still direct rein if I want.... but spending 100 bucks? Especially when I'm buying a saddle in the next couple weeks.
