Which is the correct bit?

I have a three y/o Arab mare takes a saddle and a bit. You can get on her but she doesn't know what to do once your up there.
After reading about all the bits available I'm still confused on what to use for a horse just learning. She will be a trail and w/p horse. We are just starting ground work and I've been out of the horse "game" a while. I have a snaffle right now but I've only had it on her twice.

Thanks in advance

A french link snaffle is the kindest bit, and the next one up from that is just a basic snaffle. They are usually the best for young horses who are just starting.

We started my two-year-old draft cross in a french link snaffle and he does great. Personally, I think the mildest bit you can get away with is the best. So, I'd say keep with the snaffle and just work with her on responding to cues.

Some sort of snaffle; mouthpiece depends on what she likes and cheek piece depends on what you like. Might even start her in a rope halter, really.
