I would go thicker to be honest, and curved as its just nicer on the horses mouth. But if you can match the size of your snaffle is probably a good idea? Im not sure how effective the nose piece will be, but you can always try it and let me know how you go. :)
If not try the bitless bridle under your normal bridle worked for my gelding a while back. :)

I don't like any of them. All are two piece bits which produce a nut cracker affect on the mouth. If any of those come with a bit with a middle piece, it would be much less harsh.

And yes, I would want thicker too. Those all seem very thin for someone looking for a mild bit.

My first choice is the first bit.

Second choice with be the third bit. I do have that one and I like it. The nose and was very tough and stiff, so I wrapped it in vet wrap.

Then why do we start young horses in them (snaffles) im not being sarcastic either haha just asking


Thanks for all the imput,ill be looking around tonight for a bit. Also the snaffel I have is thicker than the ones shown. So I will be looking for something close to that. I wouldnt mind having one with a dog bone in the middle either. If anyone can find one with the nose piece!
