I just found some helpful information (I would post the link, but we're not supposed to link other sites) about single jointed snaffles.
Has anybody seen the curved ones? An example would be the JP Korsteel Full Cheek Snaffle with a single joint (this is the kind I use). The curve in these bits are supposed to eliminate the nutcracker effect. However, horses with low palets should still stay clear of single jointed bits.
Does anybody have anything to add about how the curve in the bit effects how the bit moves in the mouth?
I can't find any other information about it to clarify the details.
It's where I learned about working hard
And having a little was just enough
