I've found that horses that are a bit fussy go nicely in a single jointed, sweet iron snaffle - either loose ring or eggbutt.

A plain rubber bit is not good unless the horse keeps its mouth shut and moist, semi dry rubber can catch the skin.

I would try borrow them as what once horse hates others love - frenchlinks and mullen mouths are both soft bits - the mullen mouth you have to watch when you first start them in it as often they flick there tongue over the bit till they get used to it..

I've used both the above on my older mare and she went well in both but got a little leany on the mullen mouth...

The other one is the KK which has a fatter centre piece than the French link - I use this on my young horse....

Its all about seeing what they like... and usually try any new bit for at least a week or two as it can take a while to come accustomed to one...

A myler is the other one you may want to consider - but they are pricier again
