    I second (third?) the choice of a bit with a Billy Allen or Myler type mouth. Even one with a solid ported mouth would be better than the TT you're using now.

    Here are a few options that are nice and mild. I've used either these exact bits or ones that are very similar with excellent results.

    My mustang, Dobe, really likes this bit

    This one is more like a mullen mouth

    And this one, the picture and the price make you automatically think "Oh, it's a piece of crap", but it's actually one of my favorite bits.

    You might have to experiment some. But if she goes good and comes on to the bit in the regular D-ring in your English classes I might start with the second bit that smrobs posted a link to and that SH suggested and see how she does. It would be a starting point at least.

    As far as I can tell, a Myler bit like the one pictured has a mouthpiece that basically IS a Billy Allen.
