Northernmama - I said larger mouthed horses because many average sized horses are uncomfortable in a thicker bit. Of course, no horse is the same so what works for some wont work for others, but generally hollow bits work better with larger mouthed horses.

We use hollow, thicker bits for mouthing the youngsters. They are meant to be kinder and more gentle. I have no idea why they are hollow but makes sense as they would be very heavy otherwise... I guess they feel nice and light in the mouth.
I back my youngsters and start schooling in the sweet iron bits or these with the copper lozenge in.
