I am wondering, if you don't use the ports on the Kimberwick, would it act like a snaffle? I like the copper quarter moon.
The Hanging Cheek french link is only made of stainless steel. I really like them to have other metals like copper or sweet iron in thinking it helps salivation....or may a plain stainless be ok too?
Also, if a bit has shanks, without a curb chain...do you have to neck rein with it?
I am looking for a 7" bit, so they are a rare in snaffles. I have a D-ring copper roller single jointed snaffle at the moment, but am trying to find something that isn't single jointed.
