Snaffles don't have shanks. If it has shanks, it's a leverage bit.

Just because you've used it your whole life, that doesn't mean it's not harsh :) why the change in bit?

None of my trainers have ever recommended broken bits with shanks to me :/ I like Mylers or solid mouth pieces if shanks are involved

If you want swivel shanks on a leverage bit, go with a double jointed mouthpiece (maybe a roller), NOT the single one you pictured, basically a tom thumb.

I absolutely LOVE my three piece reiner by Reinsman, but I'd start out with a plain ol' snaffle. I don't use a leverage bit until I can move just about every part of their body without yanking (maybe they need a little reminder every once in awhile to neck rein) at their mouth or kicking as hard as I can. I get the swivel shanks unless a reminder is needed or I'm showing. I don't like neckreining around barrels/poles, so I like to still be able to have extra if my horse spazzes out of nowhere at a show (not enclosed or close to a road), but I still want to be able to neck rein when needed.
