What type of bit should I use

What type of bit should I use?

*I am riding western style(only doing light riding)
*I have a stubborn horse
*He hasn't been ridden in a while
*He has a 5 inch mouth
*I don't want the bit to pinch him.

So with all of those details above, what type of bit would you recommend. And let me know if there are any other things I need to buy for a certain bit, to make that bit work.

Well, a bit isn't going to fix any problems you have, it'll only mask them for a short period of time. If you're having trouble with your horse its best you get a trainer to help you.

But to answer you... maybe a snaffle or basic curb bit.

IMO you should restart him with a snaffle. Get him bending and respectful with that then change to a curb or something if you want later on. A harsher bit will only mask problems if you start with it.
