    Which would you start a horse in?

    I'm not in the market for 'starting a horse' but I am a bit of a... bit collecter (bit hoarder might be a better term?) and I'm just curious what you guys 'prefer' to start a horse. The mullen mouth type rubber bit or a plain rubber snaffle or something different completely and why.

    I do understand that it largely depends on the horse / their mouth / what they prefer.

    I've chosen to generally start in a halter/sidepull (I've only restarted, but regardless, I think). With that I can do everything without ever havin to risk yanking in a younger horse's mouth (I tend to "yank" or quickely "pull" into a circle) if they act up too much.
    Then I switch to a normal d-ring snaffle when all the basics look and feel great and go to work on feel and look with the snaffle. And depending on what the horse will be doing, we'll then go to a Jr cow with a copper roller or a similar bit.
