    I've had problems with the purchase on bits before and what I've done is to put the bit in a vise and bend the purchase out and out of the way. Just be sure to go slow and use a cloth or something else to protect the metal from being marred.

    I would rather do that then to use a mouth piece that was too large for my horse.

    I have done that as well. I did notice that some bits bend much easier than others and poor quality bits will crack.

    Now there's an excellent idea. I will take a closer look at the mouthpiece. If it does fit him, I will try to bent the purchase to give a little more clearance.

    Thanks!
