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
I said indeed.
But not bucking, she was throwing her head and trying to push my leg against the fence refusing to listen. I tried 5 different bits or so (from $$ to $$$). The combo I use now (one of the most gentle one can pick: eggbutt + lorenzo mouthpiece) is the one she rides in for the last 3 years, and I have no intention to change it. She also absolutely can't ride without the nose net on April through November because of the flies and allergies (she waves the head non-stop if I don't have it attached to my bridle). I don't see the point to change the equipment as long as the horse is happy with the current one. BTW, yes, she's extremely picky girl (my paint is not nearly as picky). But if she's comfortable, she (for the most part) will give her heart to the rider. Lol!
