    I'd go with a solid port. Jointed shanks can be harsh (with the added leverage plus the nutcracker action). Definitely get one with movable sides, not stationary. It'll be more clear to the horse.

    Billy Allen also have a combo type bit for horses who dislike tongue pressure. It is the regular Billy Allen bit but with a ported mouthpiece. That may be a good one to look at if your horse likes to have tongue relief.

    I would, however, avoid ones with the copper barrel like this one because they tend to wear faster and can develop sharp pinching edges.
