I originally had this question under "western riding"
Dbl wire twisted snaffle question
But I think it belongs here in "Horse training"
When we got our paint, we tried him in a dbl twisted wire snaffle. He was fine and brought him home and trained him in a smooth sweet snaffle and to be much lighter in the mouth. He has a much lighter (med port reining bit) bit. I think I remember Craig Cameron saying a bit like that should only be used for about a week until the horse knows what is expected.
I have a friend who has been leasing an arabian. She will own him tomorrow I think. She is using and will continue to use the dbl twisted wire snaffle for daily use. I know this will somewhat make a horse tougher in the mouth but is it BAD???
It's a 12 year old I think that is the regular rider... and it IS an Arabian after all!
What's your opinion?
Thanks in advance!
