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!
