I'm looking for a new bit for Jubilee because... horrors of horrors ... I discover I'm using a western bit on my English bridle. (I know make fun of me, lol). My friend who rides western gave the bridle to me. I didn't really think twice about it. It's an English bridle and that fits well. But this bit is almost like a half-cheek. Its a snaffle, which is what I want, but its making her drop her head and besides that is WESTERN!! And has got to go. My trainer gave me a regular English snaffle to use and I tried it on her the other day, but its extremely thick and very mild. Jubilee was running away with it at the end. Also In my lesson Tuesday, my trainer gave me her bridle and bit to use and it was a Doctor Bristol. It worked much better and I had an easier time stopping. I'm not sure about that kind, but I'm thinking a regular snaffle that's thinner, less milder and with copper rollers so she can play around with it and work at a bit more. What do you guys think about copper roller bits (snaffle)?
P.S. I'm in no way looking for harsh. Just more effective.
