Okay so I just bought a new horse and before I buy a bit for him I want to know which to use... He needs a lot of work on the basics so I need a bit that will help him with that, I don't want it to be too harsh but I also want him to listen to it. He needs to learn how to flex and when I tell him to turn I don't want him to be able to refuse it of pull against it that easily! But like I said, I don't want a hard-mouthed horse so I can't have it to harsh!
Basically I need a bit that I can use to get him to where he is a GREAT well mannered, gentle and responsive horse! As of now that's all I ask of him then eventually I will move on up to show disciplines. He is a Spanish Mustang btw =)
