I ride my mare in a plain eggbutt snaffle...

And also a 3/4" bosal. I don't have pics, but it is the rawhide with kangaroo noseband...

Right now, just a regular ol' eggbut snaffle with a copper mouthpiece :D My youngster, Red, carries it really well. Looks very sharp in it.

Getting ready to hunt down...
Mullen mouth short-shanked for my Foxtrotter. He just doesn't respond as well in the snaffle, he likes a fuller/heavier bit to carry, apparently.
Nice full-cheek and maybe a D-ring. Haven't decided on the mouthpiece yet.

Nothing fancy for me, just what the horses like ;) I tried a hackamore on Loki and he had an absolute fit about it. Put it on my ol' rescue Sam and he was in love.

I was riding in a copper french link, but then switched to the Pelham in December.

I like using a snaffle bit similar to this one:

This is what Abby got recently. She rides much better in a rope halter than bits, so I got her a sidepull attachment because I like my headstall too much and her nasty brown rope halter (got it when I bought her because the lady used it on her as a bridle and didn't need it anymore) slides all over.


It attaches like this with a curb strap.

This is what hers looks like.
