    Kristy he doesn't suck back or evade the waterford, it just makes it impossible for him to learn on it or get to deep which is his preferred method of evasion of the mullen mouth.

    As a responsible user of a leverage bit I use a snaffle rein and a leverage rein on my xc bit so I only use the leverage when I need it.

    Tell him about double jointed bits, he doesn't want anything to do with them. I've tried believe me,however if you've noticed the pattern with the bits none of them touch the roof of his mouth.

    The horse chooses the bits.

    In my opinion, if you can't jump or do cross country, or any given horse activity, in a regular snaffle, such as an O-ring or a D-ring, then you are just managing a prey animal and the horse is not well prepared mentally and emotionally. I'm not saying curb bits, for instance are bad, they have a time and a place, but ya'll know what I'm saying.

    I think any twisted bit, gag bits, shanked snaffles, chain bits, and lots of others are just used for control and brakes and they are torture devices. They are "good excuses" for bad hands and not enough knowledge. Just my 2 cents.

    Anyways. I ride my youngster in a dee ring french link snaffle. Always. I beleive all young horses should be trained in snaffles. Just that.

    I just use my Jointed Snaffle w/Cheekpieces for everything. He's always had that bit, though i'm not sure he needs the cheekpieces anymore.
