needing bit advice
I have an 18 year old Quarter Horse that I have been riding with a twisted wire snaffle bit since I started riding her 16 years ago. Due to a combination of moving off to college and starting a career, as well as not living near my horse, she hasn't been ridden regularly over say the last 5-6 years. My boyfriend and I recently bought a house and a little bit of land, which is allowing me to be able to start riding again on a regular basis. (Boy did I miss it!) My horse seems to not be responding as well as she used to to the twisted wire snaffle bit that I'm currently riding her in. Back in the day, I did do some showing at the local & 4-H levels, ran barrels and poles a little. At this point in time, I'm not going to get back into that, just be doing some trail riding and going to some field trials with my boyfriend. Since I'm not savy to which bit I should look for, I thought I would ask if anyone had any advice out there which one I should choose. Or at least steer me in a general direction. I don't think that it needs to be a real severe bit, just something different than a snaffle. Any advice or direction would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!
