Smile Your opinion on a certain bit..?

Hi,
I'm just wondering, what are your opinions on a double twisted snaffle bit, I have heard various opinions and I want to hear a few more.

Thankyou :)

Severe.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

Yep, it is a very severe bit and I would not suggest it to anyone. If there is a horse that is about to be put in this, I would suggest retraining cause that bit would only cause more problems.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

run! Run as fast as you can from that horrible bit!

But seriously, no one should use that bit. Like smrobs said, if you think you need it, it's a problem that no change of bit will fix. Only quailty training will.

I've spent most of my life riding horses. The rest I've just wasted.
