    bit question

    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

    I was also thinking the last bit on the first link but I'm not sure which is better I have heard better things about the one with the roller though

    I have one almost exactly like the one in the middle of the top row in the first link. I like it and it seems to work well for most horses.

    Why would you train in a different bit than you run in? I like my horses to perform the same away from home as they do at home.

    Kevin- Thank you :] but she doesn't need quite that much shank hah. I usually just like to train her in a snaffle simply by preferance and that's how my trainer works her mare but I will practice probably once a week or so in it so I know how she works and she knows the feel of it. I love my snaffle I just need that little more leverage when running is all.
