I've always ridden my gelding in a 3 ring elevator bit or a full cheek french link. I decided to try him in a rubber bit, it has loose ring rings on it, and then its straight across flexable rubber. My gelding has never been better. He is super responsive; usually im fighting with him. Anyone else ride their horses in a rubber bit? My gelding and I are jumpers, and he is alot easier to control in this gentle bit!
