When I got my girl in Aug she had never had a bit in her mouth- I wanted to train her without one until I needed to move up, so I bought this on Ebay

And I love love love it! She is so light and responsive, I do not see us riding in anything else for a long time, if ever. I like that I can tie her with it, use one rein as a "failsafe" when working on seat cues, or use both. I had them make me matching reins that are flat braid, since I ride english.
