Seems I have a bit issue with my mare. I currently have her in a loose ring that has a lozenge. I started her off in a full cheek single joint - that didn't work. Then went to a loose ring with a single joint - that one didn't work either. So what she's doing right now with her current bit is she is balking, tossing her head, pulling/rooting, holds her head high, and tries to run away.
I tried her in a bitless for a week and had no issues at all! She was on her best behavior and didn't miss a single cue! Then today, just to see, I put the bit back in and same issues as before. But I can't show in a bitless.....
Soooooo - what are dressage legal bits that might be worth a try? I honestly don't know what to try - or what to even consider.
Oh, and before anyone asks - yes her teeth are good. Just had them done about a month ago.
