I have a 6 year old Tennessee Walking Horse who is currently in a Tom Thumb bit. He hates bits and I hate that it has a shank. I want to switch him to a snaffle bit but everyone says that I shouldn't switch him to one. That TN Walkers normally have Tom Thumb bits and that he doesn't need one. Do you think it's a good idea to switch? I don't show and I don't want to, and I find snaffle bits more useful.
I was also considering a bitless bridle instead. The Nurtural Bitless Bridle. I sounds great but I don't know how well it works with TN Walkers though. Do you think he'll still rack with a bitless bridle?
