    Also, shouldn't you have keepers for a full-cheek snaffle btw? V_v
    I don't use a keeper or guard with my full cheek snaffle. I've never had a problem. Although I will say that this particular bit seems to be hanging a bit too low in the horse's mouth.

    Really? I had the headstall up one set of holes and the gal who keeps me for me said it was up too high. He has two wrinkles like this.

    Then perhaps the bit is a tad bit too big for him... I normally don't like to see the mouth piece of the bit when it is in the horse's mouth.

    Hm, that brings up a question. I hope the OP won't mind if I just ask it here instead of making a new thread.

    What is the difference between a full cheek snaffle with keepers and without?
    Is the F/C considered an only "english" bit?
    What is the purpose of the bit keepers, is it just to keep the bit standing upright so that it "looks" better or is there some real mechanical or safety reason behind it?

    Sorry, I guess that was several ?s

    Full cheek snaffles use keepers to keep the mouthpiece in the proper position/angle within the horse's mouth.

    I always pull what mane she has up there, over her bridle. It would make my eyes twitchy if I didn't.

    I like to put the forelock under the browband; to make it less "messy", I will put a rubber band on it.

    For riding bridles, over. For driving bridles that doesn't work due to the blinder attachments ;) So with them I take their forelock in front of one ear and off the side of their face so it's out of the way and, IMO, looks nice :)
