    You can get a full cheek with a low port too. Not sure how much they like it in the hunter ring, but it might be an easier transition, though a little harsher. Also bit keepers = necessary with a bit like that!

    I never knew they had those! But I think I'm going to try to go back to a twisted wire, give that a try for a while and see how he takes to it :) thanks for the suggestions!!

    The thinner the mouth piece, the harsher the bit. So if you're stuck on the wire, don't go for too thin or you'll end up way more harsh than you want to be

    Thin isn't legal in AQHA so no worries on that! nothing's worse then walking into the arena at the world show or congress and being told your bit isn't legal... Seen it happen a few times. Totally stressful. Thanks again :)

    The bit has it's purpose in the right, educated hands ... problem is that most riders only think they are educated.

    Why would you be considering a bit you know nothing about?

    That's why I came on here, to find out some information on the bit before its used. Now I know :) if I never considered a bit that I know nothing about then there would only be a very very limited amount of bits for me to choose from.
