What a bit! I finally got out to try it last night and immediatley noticed a dramatic difference in my horse. He was much more relaxed and actually seemed happy to tuck his chin into his chest and just go. There was no rushing and no balking at the canter. Just a quick question/comment for those KK user's......does this bit run small? Kirin is a normal sized quarter paint, I got the 5" size and it seemed a little small to me....I could see a tiny bit of the ends of the bit itself, the rest was the "ring" I assume if it was too small he'd make a fuss, but I am wondering if I should go one step up to the 5 1/4?
