I have a 7 y/o dutch warmblood/ thoroughbred (newly) gelding. And he has been off being trained in straight bar bit in a training fork.
I need to keep him in a pretty harsh bit, from what im learning the straight bar is pretty intense. Is this true? Should I keep him in a straight bar or should I change it? If I change it what other harsh bits are good. And please get me some pictures if you have ideas.
I am new to switching bits, I usually use a french link snaffle and/or a plain staffle. I have used an elevator bit but I'm not a big fan.
Thanks for your help and input guys!!!!!
