Bit shopping isn't very fun...

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.
AHE Antique Brown 5 269-211=
(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.

I know of a couple cheaper sites for the jr cow horse if you want? I personally love the bit and all the variations you can get.
This is where I got mine from

Well, she's a nervous nelly, so something with a roller would probably me a miracle for her!

This bit worked great for my boy until he decided he didn't like it and completley stopped listening so back to a snaffle more and to found he actually loves the wonder gag however I'm on a search to find something better than the wonder bit I think it's a touch to much.

Well, this mare is really light, so more gag than a cow horse would probably be too much, but I'd be willing to try a combo bit on her... I might have to order that cowhorse..

Ya I definitely wouldn't suggest that bit for her. I think the jr cow horse should but just fine, my boy has had a ton of bad training on him and I need that little bit extra at shows but I try and stay as soft as possible with it.

Yeah, I mean she's fine in a snaffle, but neckreins like a champion with shanks, and if she'll neckrein like that barrel racing, I'd be one happy girl.

Hopefully it's the happy medium I need!

Hey, I get mine here ( Horse Bits | Buy Horse Bits Online | Equine Bits ). I actually find the website very useful and they have great service and there is so much to choose from so there is no doubt something you can find for cheap.
