A friend of mine asked me for some advice on bits. She is starting her Paint mare with a bit soon, and was wondering what kind. I told her just a simple snaffle (loose ring, egg butt, etc.). She will probably be doing mainly trail riding and a mix of English and Western riding. Does that kind of bit sound ok for her to use?
She was also wondering about what kind of bit to use for her other horse. He is a mainly Western/Trail riding horse. She has him in a low-port straight bit right now, but she would like to move onto something gentler for working with some reining type stuff. I'm not sure what kind of bit to suggest...any ideas??
