Ported Kimberwick to Jointed Kimberwick

I school dressage and I'm still a beginner with a very forward, 20yo ex-eventer mare.

A regular snaffle was too much for me to handle with her and it was all about speed and control which sometimes got out of hand. Trainer advised I switch to a kimberwick. It made a huge difference. There's still a lot of forwardness going on but I can now also concentrate on my riding and not just losing control of my horse. Which will of course improve my riding and my cues to the horse.

But I've been reading that the ported bits do not allow for bend so found a double jointed kimberwick (cuz those are better then a single jointed) but since it's $200+ I'm wondering if it's worth it as I've only found Herm Sprenger that makes a double joined one. My horse leans inside when tracking left, so I've been working on that...

Yes I know kimberwicks are not show legal. I'm far far off from formal showing. And I do know that some people school in kimberwicks but show in legal snaffles.

I can afford to spend the money but I certainly don't want to waste my money on it. Thoughts?

Current Bit: Korsteel Uxeter Kimberwicke Bit

Possible Purchase: Herm Sprenger KK Ultra Kimberwicke Bit - has the 45 degree center
