I'm currently using an el cheapo bit like that which comes with a western bridle when you purchase it. I already know that this isn't a great bit but I needed to try something other than the tom thumb and that was the only other thing we had in the tack room and I didn't feel like spending money until I had some sort of direction on what to buy.
Come March she's having her teeth floated, I've noticed she drops some grain when she eats. However the high headed issue has persisted years before she started to show symptoms of teeth issues. The teeth may very well be contributing to the factor but I don't think they are initially what started the problem.
I looked through my pictures and I really don't have a good one of her demonstrating the behavior. I ride alone, there’s not many pictures of my actually on a horse :(
As of for what type of hackamore . . . I don't know. I don't know anything about them. That why I started this thread :) I figured I'd get some opinions from some actual riders not just some promo ad on the internet.
