First one would be better, it has loose rings, we like to keep things loose with the young ones.

They don't look that different comparitavily, about the same. But the top is definitely made of different metal than the bottom. Sweetwater, perhaps?

Okay, I will choose that one! And what about the bridle, does that look good? It is very basic and adjustable so as she grows it will fit her.

Also, please excuse me if I am incorrect, but if the horse gets pinched by the ring movements, bit guards are an option to fix that, correct?

I'd probably go for something simple/used that you don't mind getting trashed in the training process... But is still nice. But that's just me. Others may have other opinions that seem more logical/with better experience.

Really shouldn't pinch if kept loose. From what I understand, Breezy is just introducing her horse to the bit, not riding, or ground driving her. It should be a bit on the loose side when you first introduce the bit, so they can pick it up in their mouth.

This bridle isn't that expensive and will be used for everything, so I am not worried about it getting dirty or wrecked as I can just get another one!

Ah, okay. I remember reading once some loose rings might pinch.

Absolutely NO chin strap.......just a simple loose ring snaffle, no need for bit guards and make sure your bridle has a throat strap. Also oil that bridle up we'll before you use it so its nice and soft.
