    What about that new contraption that Myler makes? I saw it at the equine affair in Springfield Mass last year. It's about $150. It's a combination thing and uses a myler bit. Maybe it's the same one that Spirithorse is talking about. I think it has 4 pressure points other than the bit. When you take hold of the reins, the pressure points do their job before the bit ever comes into play. It gives the horse a chance to respond before bit pressure is applied.

    For a TB, I definitely would not go with a fatter bit. Most TBs have fat tongues and not too much room for a big bit. My TB doesn't salivate much either, but he does seem comfy with a D ring french link. He's not a head tosser, so I can't comment on that.

    My combo bit is the one Myler made with Parelli.

    My husband just bought a Parelli Myler shanked bit and loves it. Not suggesting a shanked bit, but they are very nice If you contact the Myler people they would be more than willing to point you in the right direction.

    The only reason I suggest Metalab if you're going to try the bit I posted is because it's about a third of the price - if you're just going to try a bit, $90 is a bit pricey if you're not sure it will work.
    If you're up for paying for a Myler, absolutely go for it!

    JDI is right. Many times you can find a bit similar to one of the expensive ones and they work just as well. I'm a bargainer so I get mine cheaper usually. Never pay full retail is my motto
