So, I'm starting to look for bits for the new pony. She's four and still a little green. My friend that told me about her suggested I get a twisted wire snaffle to use on her for schooling. He said it'll give me a little more oomph so she'll have a little more respect for the bit when I switch to a plain snaffle for shows. He's a pretty good trainer and all the horses I've ridde that he's worked with have been really soft and light in the bridle. So I respect his opinion, but at the same time I've never been a fan on twisted wire bits. The only time I've ever really ridden in one was on a lesson horse who had a rock hard mouth.
So what do you guys think? Have you had success with a twisted wire snaffle (I'm talking reasonably thick here no those scary ones that are like a millimeter thick). Would you never use one and why? Discuss
