I've been riding my OTTB in a regular snaffle bit (cheap one prob, got it from my father in law). He does really well in it but sometimes I feel like he isn't getting as much direction as I'd like. Being raced in a similar bit I think he's a little numb to it at times. Don't get me wrong, we haven't had any problems with it I'm just not sure I love it any more. I don't want a more sever bit, I was just thinking of something like a french link. Something different that will give more direction with softer hands. What do you guys think about them?
