Western Pleasure Bit help?
I am riding my horse with a low port shank western bit.
I want to buy a different bit that would refine her cues.
With the bit she is using now, my reins aren't loose because she doesn't bend her head properly unless she has a more firm contact.
I want to get a bit, where I can have a loose rein and she will feel a slight movement of my hand.
The old owners gave me the bit I have now just to start her with, and they said once I knew her better to move up to a different one.
When I tried her out, they had a different bit in her mouth, and she was great with just the slightest movement of my hand.
I think I need to get the same kind of bit, with a higher port?
If you would like to post links to bits, please do so, but my budget is about $40 for a bit.
Thanks so much!
**Also: I don't want a harsh bit that will hurt her mouth. I just want a bit that I barely have to pull up on the rein, because the one I use now is alot more uncomfortable for her, because I am constantly pulling on her mouth because she is stubborn***
