Okay, so I ride Aires in a 5.25" eggbutt french link snaffle and we both really like it. However, because he's so green, he'll often fight me, and when he does, the bit will slide through his mouth (often to the point that the ring will slide through into his mouth). I tried putting a curb chain on it, but even on the smallest setting it's too loose to prevent the bit from sliding through his mouth.
So, I'm thinking of switching out our regular eggbutt french link for a full cheek french link. I know he hates regular snaffles (that's what we started him in and he hated it...put him in the french link and he was MUCH more responsive).
Do you think switching to a full cheek is a good idea?
If we do make the switch, I'm considering this bit:
Mikmar Cupreon French Link Three Piece Copper Rolled Full Cheek Snaffle Bit
I know it's a little pricey, but I think the roller will keep him busy (he likes to chew on the bit when we're walking or just sitting there).
