    Looking for a new bit

    I am looking to get a new bit for Gyspy. Not a harsher bit nessisarily but to see if she responds better in a different bit. She is currently in a french link happy mouth loose ring bit and does not respond to it well at all. She throws her head up and she will refuse to stop. I know its also training that needs to be done but I the bit is a problem as well. When I'm trying to stop her the bit will pull through her mouth funny so one of the joints sits almost in the corner of her mouth. The rings are really small too.

    I had her in a regular copper D ring snaffle but one of the sides on it doesn't bend anymore so I can't use it. She responded better to that bit.

    I was thinking of getting either another copper snaffle but I'm not sure on the type of ring and if I want single joint or double (french link). Or maybe some bit that I could use to help me train her without being harsher all the time. Not sure if theres such a thing. Any other ideas or suggestions? Also finding one that fits is a problem. She takes 4.5" bit and places tend to charge way more for the smaller bits if they carry them at all. I know Just For Ponies but I only found a copper roller bit, not full copper. Does anybody have website suggestions?

    If you are tight on money I'd look into somethign like this: JP Korsteel Copper Oval Mouth Loose Ring - Copper/Aurigan Mouth from SmartPak Equine or this Dover Saddlery | Hunter Dee Ring Snaffle Bit with Copper Link .

    If you have more to spend you can look into Stubben, Mikmar or (that's a very expensive one but very nice) Sprenger.
