Here we go again... Please, be more precise WHAT bit you are talking about before you start bashing Mikmar as a brand.
I'm sorry, but it's really p*ssing me off (excuse my French) when people just say "Mikmar is harsh".
Mikmar snaffles are awesome
! In fact the best
I've seen/tried (better than super expensive KK Ultra). Both my mares go in Mikmar snaffles, and they prefer them over 5-7 bits I tried (KK, Myler and Stubben including). I know bunch of people with the same very nice experience with Mirmar snaffles.
Here is what I use for several years already Mikmar Bit Company Mikmar Bit Company
Could you, please, tell me how harsh are those?
