I have a 10 year old thoroughbred/app/morgan mix. He is trained western. He is riding in a normal snaffle bit. I wanted to start him on a shank bit, due to the fake its what Im used to and for showing purposes when we do decide to show. I was wondering what is a kind bit to use. I have experiance with using them so I don't have a rough hand but I don't want a bit that's harsh. He listens okay to the shank bit. It will go from a lope to a walk and a trot to a walk. The only thing you have to give a bit of pressure to is walk to a stop. You have to pull hard for him to stop. If you could post a picture with the bit and why you like it that would be so helpful. Anything would be helpful!
Thank you so much to all who reply!
If your horse says no, you either asked the wrong question of the question wrong!
