I was having a discussion on bits with a friend of mine.
She was talking about how she dosen't like curb chains. I was told that leverage bits without a curb chain (my trainer and I where refering to kimberwicks) offered leverage, but it was signifigantly decreased.
And I was also wondering, with ported bits.. I read that they have to be a certian hight to reach the roof of the horse's mouth... is this correct? At what hight does the port interfere with the roof of the mouth?
I get a little frustrated with this girl.. she rides in a big western bit with 2 breaks and calls it a snaffle. She rides with this bit to 'set the horse's head', I wanted to help her, get her a snaffle and some dressage help, but she never listens to my agruments because im younger then her.
