What type of bit is this?

Sorry, no picture. It looks basically like a bunch of metal balls hooked together. The whole mouthpiece is loose, like a chain. If I'm making no sense (very likely) could someone point me towards a good website that has the different bit types?

Is this what you are talking about? If so, this is a waterford. :)

Waterford! It is a good bit to lighten your horse up on the forehand and work in a better outline, without as much fighting!

How does a bit do that?

Since the waterford is like a chain, and very flexible, it is hard for the horse to lean on it, therefore making them lighter in the mouth.

Oh, I know how a waterford works, I was just curious as to how it made a horse round up.

A waterford bit - lets just say OUCH. These are jaw breakers. The bit wraps around the horses lower jaw - and lets just say, Yeah, I'd try to escape the pain too if it were in my mouth.

Sorry, but if you have to use a bit such as the Waterford to get your horse to lighten up, then you aren't riding him correctly. The reason why a horse pulls and takes the bit, is because they are NOT BALANCED

The pressure from this multijointed bit just makes the horse evade the pain up front, when in all actuallity, your horse still IS NOT balanced, nor working properly. You take this gimick away, guess what - your horse is back to where they were in the first place - leaning into their riders hands, because their rider has no idea how to ride seat first and start back to basics with the Training Scale.

Yep, it's a quick fix. Doesn't solve anything in the long run.
