Thanks for the insight, everyone! A lot of good points to consider. I'm leaning towards just introducing her to the bit and seeing how it goes. Afterall, I'm in no rush, and we can always do some ground work to get her used to it (thanks for that idea, btw! ).

I used to ride my mare in a mechanical hack "bluhh" but she was not responsive enough so i bought a full cheek snaffle so she would also have the added pressure.she was much better. A total different horse. now when im just playing around in the pasture i use a halter and clip ons but i think starting with a bit is best. you just have more control at first then start doing what ever works best for her what ever it my be.
