I have a 2yo who seems to have a very "mouthy" personality. I swear he must chew on everything to make sure its not edible.
It drives me nuts sometimes, and if your not paying enough attention he'll catch you with a good snap. (i'm working on breaking this too).
So after getting him used to a saddle, i've slowly been introducing him to the bridle. I just put a regular loose ring snaffle on him, and he plays with it. Tongue over the bit, and under and so on. I didn't try the tom thumb yet, which I think he'll do the same thing. So I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what kind of bit would be good for him to try and get used to with out distracting himself by playing. I was thinking something that maybe had rollers and copper or sweet iron. But i'm not too sure. Your advice is much appreciated!! Thank you!!
P.S. I plan on hopefully turning him into a barrel horse or pleasure horse someday.
