My horse is currently ridden in this bit:
Full Cheek Snaffle Bit 5 inch Mouth: Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - ChickSaddlery.com
(not the exact bit, but close enough)
He usually does pretty well, but He doesn't bend, and although I know that the bend comes from the leg, I was wondering if there was a better bit to back up the leg. Also, he has a bit of a "steering problem" occasionally, where once he is behind a horse in a lesson or such, he won't turn/circle to gain space, and while I know that this is just his natural herd instinct, I would like to be able to back up my seat and leg aids a bit better.
Would you recommend a double jointed snaffle? With maybe a D-Ring instead of a full cheek?
