One of my friends today told me that since they didn't like my current bit (a full cheek) they were going to get me a D-Ring and give it to me for free.
My first question is: If my horse is doing well in a full cheek, should he be okay in a D-Ring too? I mean, isn't a D-Ring is pretty much the same thing as a full cheek, just without the long "arms"? It still has lateral steering, right?
My second question: What should I do to disinfect the bit if it isn't already clean?
Third Question: My horse isn't particularily fussy about anything, so he should be fine with a chage of the cheek piece of a bit, right? The mouthpiece will be the same though.
