Also am I correct in assuming this is a pretty mild bit? I don't like using any kind of single-jointed bit, snaffle or not, because it can still nutcracker and hit the roof of the horse's mouth or the tongue. That's why I got this one - because it has 3 joints, and conforms better to their mouth (less pressure on the tongue, more on the bars). That's what I was looking for when I was at the tack shop, but I never really asked anyone before. I was looking at Myler bits the other day online, but I'd rather hold it in my hands and twist it around so I can understand how it works before I buy it.
