    problems with choosing a bit!! =[

    Those are some possibilities. I'm really looking at the gentlest bits out there. But i'm pretty sure that I can't use any of these in hunter jumper shows... =[ so I was thinking maybe somthing as mild as you can get that is legal for shows... and what might thatbe? Help me out here! Something that makes the horse salivate would be nice too but not mandatory.

    Just please pick one of the top ones and help with finding a showing bit for me. Thanks sooo much! =]

    Hmm, I have no idea what is legal in the english world, but what about a Frenchlink type snaffle, and for salvitation it could have some copper in lay?

    Try this for schooling im pretty sure that you can wear them in hunter shows if you f[ind them in black. I know you can cause I have one. I used that for Schooling and then just used a plain D ring for showing.

    Also on your list of posibilities you put a hackamore. I know this one you can't wear in the hunter ring but you can use it in jumpers

    Hope this helps[/url]

    Thanks so much to all of you so far!


    ...and I just wanted to add that the bit will probably be used on a totally green mule. =]

    Ooo. Cool ^_^

    And i'll keep the curb bit in mind. I'll probably end up trying a billion different bits. Lol

    Except for my mare who was in a D-ring, most my horses have always been ridden in loose ring snaffles. The loose ring gave that extra comfort and playing ability. They all really liked it.

    Try it a few bits and see which one your horse prefers:)
