Ahh, okay. I knew that the top piece attaches to the bridle I just wasn't sure what it did.

Would be very little pressure if any.

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I start all my horses in a simple loose ring snaffle but after they have advanced far enough in their training, then I up them to one of these 3 bits. Though they look very similar, there are just minute little differences that give each a different feel.

I have also just ordered one of these so we'll see how much I like the feel of it.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

I ride in a strange eggbutt D-ring crossover...not a eggbutt not a D-ring but a mixture of both...someone gave it to me I dont know what its called.(no pic) I also ride in a single jointed copper mouth full-cheek.

If you don't love dressage you've never done it right.
