Ok so I am training my mare for barrels and (training bit is a D-ring snaffle) she feels ready to be moved up and my trainer thinks she is to. Now I will only be using the bit to run her in not train. The bit that my trainer uses on her mare who is very similar to mine is a cowhorse bit with barely there shanks (5th bit down smooth mouth)
What are your opinions she has a very good stop is bending well and we are starting to add more speed to her finally and works well off of her booty.
Just want your opinions on the bit . I wil probably use my trainers bit first before I purchase it so I know she likes it as I need just a little more leverage don't need a stop and I'm pretty soft handed no yanking pulling or unsteadiness
