I feel the best to ride in is either of these four:
- egg butt snaffle
- loose ring snaffle
- D ring snaffle
- full cheek snaffle
All of the above should preferably be in either single or double jointed, depends on how much play you want to give your horse.
It also helps the horse when it is the sweet metal type. They accept it a bit better sometimes.
By the way, a full cheek enables better turning because it prevents the bit from moving side ways in the horse's mouth.
The most popular snaffle I find is the full cheek, although I prefer an egg butt.
