This is what I use on my mare when I'm reining: http://www.kotrading.com/productimag...its/261100.jpg
I've tried a lot of bits, and she definitely seems to like that one the best.
Is it true that aluminum tastes bad? How on earth would you know whether your horse thought it tasted bad?
How exactly does the lightness of the bit affect the horse? Does it make it milder? Is there any difference?
I ask because I've been using my trainers bit and want to buy my own. I found two - one with an aluminum mouthpiece and one with a sweet iron mouthpiece.
Will the sweet iron mouthpiece make the bit a lot heavier? Or will it still be a lot lighter than, say, a completely stainless steel bit?
Thanks : )
