Okay, so Rebel is the horse who kinda got me hooked on this bit. I was at a lesson with him on day and I had just been riding him in the snaffle, but he's too old to show in a snaffle.
My trainer walked into the tack room and brought this out:
Sorry for the fail pic, I took it when it was dark inside with the flash.
I really love it. It swivels on cheeks and there's little to no pinching. It's broken in the middle so I find if I hook my reins to the side rings instead of the shanks I can get the effect of the snaffle, or obviously the use of the shanks.
So since Rebel responded so well to it, I tried using it one my litte reining mare Selena. Versus her bracing against the bit she had been doing before, I found her very relaxed and not fighting me as much in this.
Just thought I'd share. I don't know what brand it is, but that looks like on of the Myler mouthpieces to me, so I assume its Myler? Like I said, my Trainer bought it, and had the tags off long before I ever got my hands on it.
So I guess that means if anyone has any more information on it I'd love to hear
