    What do you think of this bit?

    I have been riding my horse in this to get him light, and was wondering if there is anything lighter than this bit on the market?
    It's a loose ring (Kind of, it sticks on the rubber some.), and solid rubber, very squishy and bendable.

    He seems to be going very well in this! I am pleased because he came to me started with a tom thumb... -.-

    Anyone else have any reviews on the durability of this bit?
    I am a little worried to ride in it out of the ring because it is all rubber...

    I think leather would be harder on the mouth than a soft rubber.... ?

    Rubber is fine, I prefer using metal though because Rubber can get chewed up as does Leather. Leather just downright scares me, not sure why people feel the need to use it...There's a reason we use it on breakaway straps, because it breaks away. Most people won't know how to maintain it, and even thick leather can have its issues if the horse is chomping on it.

    If your horse likes the mullen mouth rubber, then by all means, ride him in it!

    My horse would chew through a leather bit in an instant. I've never heard of them existing before now actually.

    Rubber can be a really gentle, nice option but sometimes rubber bits are just too thick for some horses mouths. I've also heard that they can get rough edges if chewed on, so just watch out for that!

    I love mullen mouth bits. However, I find that the rubber ones are often too thick to be comfortable in many horse's mouths. And, as has been said, the mouthpieces get chewed badly causing rough edges that hurt. Some people will prefer the "Happy Mouth" bits as they are a harder plastic that is harder to chew up.

    I prefer metal that is a diameter that fits in pretty much all horse's mouths. The one I use has a nice tongue relief that makes it even more comfortable

    I don't see anything wrong with that bit, but I prefer thinner bits that are less substantial in a horses mouth.

    I use a myler loose ring that I really like.
