And as always, when choosing a bit, just because it's not severe, doesn't mean the horse will like it. I like new balance shoes, you might like nike or reebok--horses mouths are not the same. I have a very sensitive gelding, and it took me YEARS to figure out which bit he liked, because I never tried it because it is labeled 'severe'. It's a waterford bit--and it's the ONLY bit he's happy in (loves going long and low and creating contact with my hands).
