Blu is the SAME way! I recently switched his bit, to one he responds all around better with, but now that he doesn't have a roller he bites and bites. Its like his teeth hurt or something. Or he is trying to eat his own tongue! lol. I don't mind it. But you can get a dog-bone snaffle with donut rings on it. In order o have a roller i think the bit has to be a correction or unjointed...not sure.
I knew a horse that had a racing bit. it was a snaffle with a big kinda roller type thingee. His rider had the bit way to tight so he bit it and broke his bit in half! Just goes to show, not all bits need wrinkles to make it fit!
I don't go by that. I go by my horse's response, chewing, and leverage stuffs. He does really good with the Twisted Wire Wonder Gag I have. I don't like gags at all but it seems to be the perfect bit for Boo. Hope this helps...
