    A month ago I transitioned my 5yr from a snaffle to a Tom Balding "Doublecross". It has a couple copper rings similar to a cricket.

    Pretty mild and has good control.

    Although the bit might not work for you I really like copper rings (cricket) on the bit. Sure seems like they like that.

    At this point, as she progresses, I think I will stay with a "cricket" on the future bits also.

    Although that might not be allowed when you compete.

    Mine worked fine in the snaffle, but I am able to be so much lighter with the doublecross and get much more refinement.
