Bit for a young horse?
 
I'm training a 3 year old thoroughbred filly and she's just about ready to take a bit. She's a little nervous and has some ADD issues, so I think she'll need something that'll keep her attention but I don't want to hurt her or freak her out. What should I use?

I am a huge fan of just using a regular, loose-ring snaffle on all of my greenies.

Or a mullen or French link mouth. You can even wrap it in Sealtex if she's that sensitive.

I've got a snaffle somewhere...I'll try it first. Thanks :-)
