Does a ring snaffle bit use a curb chain? Thanks
Can if you want to :wink: Some people use a curb to keep from pulling the bit through the horses mouth, same effect as a full check snaffle
It can also be used as a safety to keep the rings from getting caught on things on the trail.
I am thinking about changing bits on my little girls horse. She uses a Tom Thumb, but has trouble stopping her when she is trotting sometimes. She is 9, and freaks out when she can't stop her. Any suggestions?
I'm not sure if changing bits will help much but it may. Does the horse know the word whoa and can your daughter do a one rein stop?
The horse does fine when adults ride her. I guess she can sense that my daughter get nervous pretty quick. She knows how to one rein stop, but I might need to refresh her on that.
I would switch to a ring snaffle. A TT in my opinion is a poor communication device.
A one rein stop should ONLY be used with a snaffle! NOT with anything with a shank. This is why I suggest you put her in a snaffle.
I have never used one and didn't realize how insane they are till I read the linked article above.
