Lightbulb Fun Bit Thread :)

Just for fun, wanted to see how many people use the same bits as I do. Not wanting to bash anybody on choices of bits, just curious, kind of fun :) anywho heres mine :)

D Ring Snaffle Bit (not exact one, Shorter shank)

3" O Ring Snaffle Bit

(wow! Way bigger than I thought! Short shank port bit)
Also figured I would include these 2 since some people don't even use bits :)

Mec. Hackamore

(NOT my horse just using the picuter of the Bosal)

So what bits you ride in? And how different are they from others? Have some fun and find out tehe :)

I ride my mare in a plain eggbutt snaffle...

And also a 3/4" bosal. I don't have pics, but it is the rawhide with kangaroo noseband...

This is the bit I've been saving up for;

Right now, just a regular ol' eggbut snaffle with a copper mouthpiece My youngster, Red, carries it really well. Looks very sharp in it.

Getting ready to hunt down...
Mullen mouth short-shanked for my Foxtrotter. He just doesn't respond as well in the snaffle, he likes a fuller/heavier bit to carry, apparently.
Nice full-cheek and maybe a D-ring. Haven't decided on the mouthpiece yet.

Nothing fancy for me, just what the horses like ;) I tried a hackamore on Loki and he had an absolute fit about it. Put it on my ol' rescue Sam and he was in love.

I was riding in a copper french link, but then switched to the Pelham in December.

I like using a snaffle bit similar to this one:

This is what Abby got recently. She rides much better in a rope halter than bits, so I got her a sidepull attachment because I like my headstall too much and her nasty brown rope halter (got it when I bought her because the lady used it on her as a bridle and didn't need it anymore) slides all over.

It attaches like this with a curb strap.

This is what hers looks like.
