ok my horse needs a new bit cuz all i have a rusted ones and i cant stand rust. but i also need one that wont hurt his tung cuz his old owners used a thin bit and it cut in to his tung and it hurts him every sooo often. but i also need one that will be good for barrel racing. any suggestions????
Bits usually rust purposefully. The horses enjoy the taste and it makes them salivate.
I prefer a rusted bit anyway ; 'cause it does taste better to them. :D
Anyway, that shouldn't hurt him.
i know it wont hurt him i gust want a new one and i want to find one that wont hurt his toung cuz like i said his old owners cut his toung and the bit i have now hurts him
What about just replacing the one that you have with a new one with a thicker mouth piece.
Have you heard of Myler bits? They have a patented design for tongue relief.
i have heard good things about the Myler bits as well all though, i have never tried one. from what ive seen with barrel racers, is that they think they need to get a special bit for their horse. i am running my 10 yr old QH on barrrels in a twisted wire snaffle. if i were you i would go with the easies bit you can find but still have control, every horse is different. i alwas borrow bits from friends to try and find one that works before i go out and put down lots of money on bits that may not work (around here, you cant return bits) if you re interested, i have 2 wonder bits that im selling. one has a smooth mouth and the other is twisted wire. PM if you are interested. im selling them cheap because i dont have a need for them.
the one i have is the thikest one of its kind its a tom thumb
can i see pics of the bits ?? thank you
