bits for jumping
i have a question, what type of bits do u guys use for jumping. I'm trying to find a bit that is like a Tom Thumb pelham that i can use with a figure 8 bridle. I would change to a different kind of bit but my horse really likes the Tom Thumb, so can anybody give me some ideas.
well i use what i ride in...loose ring snaffle with rubber bit gaurd thingys....and show in a dee ring snaffle
I ride in a sweet iron eggbutt snaffle with copper inlays right now. I also have a corkscrew, a whistle bit, a slow twist, and a french link depending...
It really depends on what your horse needs. My horses were all in loosering snaffles and stayed in that bit when we jumped as well. The only time I changed bits was if I went on a trail ride or hunts. I would change him to a slow twist snaffle.
It all depends on the horse. I have one mare who goes in a 3 ring elevator with a copper dowl in the middle, or a copper pelham. My other mare goes in a jointed egg but or a slow twist full cheek.
I kno it depends on the horse i just need to find a bit that is like a tom thumb that can b used with a figure 8 bridle i just cant think of one
