I'd say go on your gut instinct on this one. You know the horse, they don't. Not to mention she is, of course, your horse so its your choice. I don't know anything about bits but I just wanted to say go with your gut, and if you feel she's ok with just what she has now, and maybe the martingale as well, explain it to both the others and ask if they would be okay to just try that first before doing anything big about buying one of those other bits. Don't let them pressure you into anything, people tried to pressure me out of buying a 16hh because I have rods in my back and they don't think I have the power to control him, but I honestly am not regretting buying him. So don't let them pressure you into something you don't want to do. That's what I'd honestly do, but again its your choice and I don't know much. Hope it all works out and would love to hear an update of what happens :) xxxxx
