    Mare's old bit was a Tom Thumb, Should I try her in a sidepull?

    My mare's old owner let kids ride her in a Tom Thumb . I have spent years trying to find something to work for her . Right now I'm ridding her with a rope halter ,but I want something that gives "clearer" signals .

    She has a thick tongue , low palate , and has a slight roman nose . I've tried snaffles and a few curbs on her ,but nothing has worked . Her teeth are fine . Also I have soft hands .

    Ever tried a french link with her?
    Or even a three piece argentine snaffle? The argentine would be similar length to a tom thumb, yet the three piece mouthpiece would be fairly mild...

    Could you try a bit less bridle, since she already goes well in just a halter?
