I'm kinda beginning to wonder if my girl Lacy needs a new different bit. According to her previous owner she's only ever been ridden in a single jointed snaffle and she does go pretty well in one. But she doesn't really give to it at all and if I try to hold her back at all she starts freaking out and backing up like something's hurting her. She got her teeth floated at the beginning of the summer so it shouldn't be a teeth problem.
I'm thinking about maybe switching to a french link snaffle since it has 2 joints and it is probably thinner that the bit she has now which I think is a bit thick (she has a typical small Arabian mouth).
What do you think?
