Opinions on this bit?

I recently decided to try a rubber mullen on our really sensitive mare, and she's doing fantastic. Even my mare that will go in a lot of stuff loves it. She's fighting a whole lot less.
Anyways, what do you guys think of the rubber mullens?
Mine is just the loose o-ring kind. Like this: Google Image Result for http://i.tfcdn.com/img2/6YnEn0EAY6o7ycFQXJBfVFIcn5iXEp9fWpKSn19UzJBRUlJgpa-fmZuYnlqsl1iaXJKZn5eYV1Ksl5yfq29kaGhgYKaXVZAOAA**/fyVMtP8A

I love them and start a lot of horses in them.

Sweetest softest bit ever, I train all the rescue ponies to drive in those!

Glad to see good reviews! I figured I'd give it a try because it looked like just about the gentlest bit ever. And if that works, then it's an awesome deal!

It really doesn't matter what anyone else thinks if your girl is going sweetly in it

My only issue with them is they are way to thick for some horses, and they don't settle with them, doesn't mean I don't like them, just that I know horses who don't like them

Oh!! Another thing, watch them carefully, check them before each ride, sometimes they chew on rubber bits which causes little sharp parts that hurt. You can file them down while they're small.

I like that... it's called a "rubber mullen"? I might order one... maybe without rubber too.

I like em. If they weren't so thick I'd suggest one to my friend for her horse, who really isn't going happily in a jointed bit, but she's got hardly any room in her little mouth.

They make mullen mouth snaffles out of metal too, not just rubber,
In general the thicker it is, the softer it is, but sometimes they really are too big. I prefer the metal ones as they last longer anyway, and you can get them in copper and sweet iron, which horses just love :) just make sure when you put the bit you you make sure the mullen faces away from the tongue!
