Oh, that looks awesome Thanks! I'll check and see if I can find a used one as it's a bit too pricey. Someday I'll get a quality bit, but I want to make sure I get one that works instead of buying an expensive one and being stuck with the wrong bit, you know?

I use the one in the first post. My Appy prefers his sweet iron full cheek snaffle. My mustang does fine with a copper D. My mare fussed a lot with both those styles, but rides quietly with the copper rings in a D snaffle.


If I knew, I'd charge folks $20/horse to tell them which bit was the perfect bit for their needs.

BTW - I consider $25 to be an expensive bit. Nothing but the best, tho', for my mare!

I use this one on the Arab I ride
Http:// was in a single-joint copper snaffle that made him raise his head high to get away from the nutcracker-effect (he has a shallow mouth). I put him in a standard french-link, and he fiddled with the flat center-joint...fiddle fiddle fiddle. It seemed like he "needed" something to play with, so I got him the one in the link, thinking the roller would make him happy, and it did. Oddly, he doesn't play with it at all. I think he just like the feel of the round center-piece on his tongue. Different horses just like different things and we just don't know why.

But it's way above the OP's budget.

I actually have the original bit you posted, and I recently switched it out and replaced it with a French link. I don't think it was a bad bit, and I think some horses would respond really well to it. For some reason it just didn't feel right with my horse though. He seems to like the French link okay though.

Thanks for all the great input!! You're all wonderful!
If you have some suggestions that are a bit expensive, that's fine too! I can always check for used ones!

These are the ones I think I have narrowed my search down to though...

I'm still really unsure about the French link bits though...hence the reason I don't have any on that list, but, If you think that French link would be the best option, I can add one!

AlBaCon French Link Loose Ring Snaffle Bit | Dover Saddlery

This is also a very good bit. I used it a lot. It's not as good as the Auregaun, but it's a fourth the price.
