Having problems with bit

How does he get the shank in his mouth?

By typing in all caps, it means you are YELLING.

I had a 2 year old that would do the same thing. He kept pulling the shank into his mouth and completely turning his bit around. I found he likes a double jointed bit with a roller of some kind. What kind of mouth piece are you using? Maybe he is getting bored?

Use a bit that doesn't have shanks, check the fit.

I noticed you started another thread on the same topic, on this forum we try to only post once for one topic and wait for responses on that thread.

Hi there, starting two threads on the same topic won't help with getting replies, especially when you look like you are shouting, sometimes you have to be a little patient and wait for replies.

You will also get far more help if you give some more details at the start, what you have given us is very little to go on.

There was no intention to rudeness just explanation, but if you are upset by someone trying to help you get a better reply to your question, then maybe this isn't the site for you.

It's a shame though, you can make good friends and get a lot if info here.

I don't think anyone was really rude. Typically we deal with multiple threads often. We just like to make sure new people understand this. Mistakes happen. And sometimes posts are misinterpreted. Things are easily misunderstood over the internet.

There is alot of good and information wealthy people here to learn from!

There are many different types of Snaffles. What I am referring to is the piece that goes in the mouth
These are both D ring snaffles. But the french link (2nd) might help your horse more.


And then you have shanked bits
One with no joint

No joint with a roller one I think he could use. But shorter shanks would be prefered.

Then you have a single joint. ( similar to the 1 my 2 year old kept pulling into his mouth.)

And then a double joint. This is the one I switched the 2 year old too. And he now loves it! And doesn't pull the shanks into his mouth
