I like 3-link bits (like the Korsteel with the roller you posted). With that being said rollers are not allowed in, say, dressage arena. Myler are nice bits, lots of people have a great success with them, but my horses were not over-excited when I tried couple.

My favorite one is oval mouth though:

Depends on what you want.

Going off of ring types alone, full cheek or half cheek and dee ring bits (sometimes eggbutt) give off lateral pressure. Loose ring doesn't so there isn't anything for the horse to lean on.

Regular snaffles have the nut cracker folding and work on the bars of the horse's mouth.
3 link ones (oval link, french link, dr. Bristol) work more off of the tongue

Myler doesn't fold, but has a bit of flexibility

I went with loose ring french link (Albacon) and it's amazing. I used to have a thick eggbutt snaffle.

Oh, thickness of the bit shafts matters too, each horse has a preference and also what fits better in their mouth.

Here's a good thread explaining more: Bit Information (Snaffle and English-Type Bits)

But looking at the bits you picked out.. I would not put 80% of them near my horse.

Thanks guys... I had a regular snaffle on my gelding but I may have pulled back.too hard for.him and he flipped over backwards ontop of me

Christ girl... are you okay?!

He must have reared then.. has this happened before?!

I don't think your bit would have caused him to rear and flip. You'd have to haul REALLY hard for that. While I would not rule out a bit problem, I think you should also consider pain, tack fit and a hole in training.

Hope you're okay!

Im fine luckily nothing is broken just severly bruised. This has never happened before and completely took me off gaurd. He spooked so I.pulled him up... I feel bad that it happened.

I think the bit was too thick for his mouth. I've herd of it happening before.

Well have the vet check the fit of his bit, and his mouth while you're at it.

Just an fyi, when a horse spooks, better to use one rein and pull them into a circle. That way all four hooves stay on the ground, only their hind end pivots and they slow down significantly.

Trust me ;P My horse has given me first hand experience.
