    Correct bit? Please&& Thankss!

    Hey guys!
    So I FINALLY rode my horse today, but I only had a saddle and so I made reins out of the halter and lead rope. Homer is really stubborn and needs a good bit in his mouth. I'm not quite sure what one I should get.
    Suggestions? Tips? All appreciated!
    Thank You!

    Weeeelllll....that's a super tall order with no background information. I suggest you read the link in my signature regarding bits, and go from there.

    What kind of background info would help?

    What discipline you do, the horse's prior training, how much riding experience you have, what bit the previous owner used on the horse, if the horse's teeth have been floated by a vet (this is extremely important), if the horse has any vices, how the horse responded to riding in the halter...

    Discipline: mainly western-barrels (just starting him), prior training: 30 days training about 6 months ago, My riding experience:7 years, Previous owners bit: not quite sure, Teeth Floated: I believe so, Riding in the halter: He did well for not being ridden in 6 months, he pulled his head alot but eventually had enough motivation, we trotted and he responded well to the pull of the lead rope.

    Start with a regular or French-link snaffle and go from there.

    Will do! Thanks for your help.

    Yep I generally go soft... I like the KKs - Like a french link but they are more an oval link and are even softer...
