Question French Link or Peanut?

I'm thinking about trying out a new bit for Abby. I was thinking of a French link but then I saw an O-ring with a peanut. Which one do you think would be better?

In my opinion, both mouth-pieces will have the same effect. Double-jointed snaffles are great! My horse loves them. I tried both the French and Bean/Peanut types and found my horse was slightly softer in the Peanut. I believe it's just personal preference (for the horse), whichever fits his mouth better.

Thanks! Yeah, I was thinking maybe I'll get the peanut. What kind did you get? O-ring, D-ring? Eggbutt?

I've got a double-jointed loose-ring with a peanut for my QH - he goes beautifully in it.

Both of them look like nice bits, but if your horse is a chewer I wouldn't go with one that had a rubber mouthpiece. I'm afraid it wouldn't last you very long! I like the bit that Rachel suggested too.

Is stateline tack US or Canadian? Thanks for all of your input! The more the better :) I thought it was plastic? But that probably wouldn't be good either because we had a plastic covered one before and good chewed.. I forgot about that LOL
