I know there is a sticky on bits but to be honost and not to sound mean, obnoxious or harsh but I don't care. It doesn't give me the information I'm looking for because what I want comes from peoples personal experiences and knowledge.
This question is probably more aimed at the breed show folks (such as AQHA and APHA) so here go's... I'm fairly soft in my hands, I use a port with a shank for western pleasure and a correction bit english.

I got a little heavy handed at the last show (not sure why) so I'm going back to my snaffle at home for both english and western but I'm looking for something to switch to, especially for english.
I would prefer to go completely to the snaffle and I think I can with time. But in the meantime, I was thinking about something more like this:

Although, I'm not sure how you know if it's legal? This one looks better to me. Is it?
