Most people start colts in a smooth snaffle.
Or depending on your "method" you can use a rope halter to start them.

I would put them in a stall while your in the barn for about 15min or more with the bridle on until they stop chomping. Make sure you're supervising.

Generaly to bit them I start with a key bit to give them something to play with and mouth. (just in thier stable letting them play with it)

Then to do any work at all I swap to a french link egbutt snaffle, doesnt give them anything to lean on but is a very very mild bit with very little nutcracker action

I love to use a smooth comfy snaffle, preferably something pleasing like sweetiron or another yummy material.

exactly... no bad experiences. Sometimes we just use a rope halter at first though.
