I just love bits, can't help it.
I agree, I love trying different bits on different horses. I think it gives you a better feel for what certain horses may prefer. I don't believe in "one size fits all" when bitting horses. They all have different mouths and preferences and I like to accommodate them to the best of my ability. I want them to be happy with the bit I put in their mouth. It is a communication tool, not a torture device.
