AND , I really am not going to worry about it because I know what works for my horse . As I got a bit , not one on the list , but one that gives a little lift without the bite , used it for about a week , got her on her hind end more (once she's fully conditioned and I can be riding more regularly she'll be golden !) , and lifting beautifully , without having to touch her at all really , I put her back in the snaffle for the past few rides and she hasn't been dropping her shoulder at all , all I have to do is keep my hand lifted properly and she's perfect . So I don't see any missing pieces to her foundation ...she's back in the snaffle and the problem is gone , NOT covered up . I really wouldnt put a harsher bit in her mouth if I didn't see fit . I didn't need to yank or pull or anything . I just did the same thing I did in the snaffle , but with that bit , it seemed to really click in her mind as after a few patterns she was already keeping herself up well .
