I am afraid I disagree with using a twisted wire on a greenie. I want the horse in the fattest, most gentle three link snaffle that is comfortable in their mouth. I want the horse to learn through positive reinforcement rather than resort to pain for a horse likely to act out of ignorance, not resistance. A green horse will chew and move a bit around in their mouth a lot. Twisted wire, when mobile, just can't help being uncomfortable, IMO.
Western, at least, tries to keep loose contact. But, in English.....contact is there. Twisted is tough for a horse to escape. OP, your photo shows English......
