Verrry funny, bubba! The horse WILL communicate how he likes a bit, just not by going into the tack room & pointing to it! Although, never say never; a horse COULD pick out his fave with his nose! LOL!

Yawh. I think it was Kitten_Val who said on another thread about horse's liking which bit her mare bucked her off until they found one they were compatible with ;D

Duffy I was lucky with.. loose ring double jointed snaffle, she works a dream. But you know what your horse is capable of, and how they move and feel, so if it doesn't 'feel' right, try something else... I still think Duffy would rather play in a field then work aha

LOL, I prefer the loose ring and I've only had one horse loudly express his thorough dislike of it (though I believe it was just the snaffle that he disliked, not necessarily the ring). So, I put him in a bit with a port and he was happy as he could be.

If the horse worked good in both the d ring and the o ring, the rider would have the luxury of picking which bit to ride the horse in.
thank you for explaining it better for me. You hit the nail on the head.

bubba, for some horses it is VERY obvious what bit they prefer. And I think that's exactly what Nothern was trying to say. If horse looks happy and rides equally in 5 different bits then go with the one you feel like using. If the horse gives you a wonderful ride (nice, soft, and relaxed) in one bit, and a bad one (tense and nervous) in other, would you pick a latter bit?
