I will have to research more bits tonight before I order one. Thank you!


I am going to try that. Gidget is highly opinionated...=/ I might just take her for a walk near the cows and see how she does :)

I thought this link was kind of interesting (even if it is a little one sided) & it kind of applies to the discussion.
Bits and their Proper Use
Also, one of the girls on another thread mentioned something called an "eventing stop" which might be helpful to the OP if she decides to stick to the snaffle. You have tension in one rein and with the other rein you pull back like you would with a one rein stop. The idea is that it stops the horse with out prompting her to bend.

Thank you fly :)

I rode today for a bit..not much as the weather was crap and work had me beat. But she seemed to do well. She chomps on her bit sometimes,could that be indicating that the bit I have bothers her or is she playing with it?

Just depends. The bit I use has copper inlay & my mare is always playing with it. If she seems relaxed when she is chomping, then she's probably just playing with it.

Okay :) She doesn't seem to be bothered..she is alert and it's when we stop is when she chomps so I was curious. I plan on still trying different bits..also hooooow do I know what her palate is like?
