Western snaffle bit

The snaffle bit I'm using on my horse now looks like an english one, and I'd like to get one that looks more ''western''. I can NOT decide between this one: Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - ChickSaddlery.com Showman Antique Futurity Snaffle Bit and this one: Saddles Tack Horse Supplies - ChickSaddlery.com Antique Finished Snaffle Bit Which one do you personally like better? I'm going to order Mecate (spelling?) reins along with it, so keep in mind which one would look better with slobber straps lol

Of the two, I like the second better. Keep in mind, depending on how fat the slobber straps are, that they will cover up a lot of this pretty silver work on the ring.

I like the second one. Only because...I would caution you about the first....I have 2 of these.
Ring Mouth Snaffle :: Downunder Horsemanship

Where the silver is overlayed onto the part of the bit that is at the corner of the mouth one of them is a bit rough. It made my horse sore. I would just be careful about that. If you DO decide on one like this, make extra sure when you get it that it is really smooth. Otherwise, I do like mine, and it was great for making him nice and soft and initial training. He now neck reins well, so no snaffle needed any more.

In case weight is in question, the one Tiny picked is the lightest weight. The others will be a little heavier.

I like the downunder ones.
