know where i can find this?
 
my friend told me to look for a german weighted loose ring snaffle on doversaddlery.com and i cant find it. i cant find it anywhere on the internet. does anyone know where i can find this? or the proper name to look for it or something because i would really like to try it out on my horse.

What you mean by "german"? German-made or german silver (metal)?

This is german silver at dover

(you can just do the search on albacon and will see lots of different ones).

ok, nevermind. lol. sorry. ive decided that i dont want to try this bit anymore. the one ive got is fine. but, out of curiosity, im riding my horse in a eggbutt snaffle right now. he's a green 6 year old ottb and im training him to round and put his head down. he's doing fine with this bit but he's not concistent(sp?) in putting his head down. i was just wondering if there's a better bit that would help him to accomplish this. i know he won't be perfect at it until he gains the necessaery muscle but is there a bit that will make him want to give to the bit more? just wondering. thanks!

if he does it "sometimes" with the eggbutt, i would evaluate your seat/hands...no bit is a mericle cure for a headset ;)

my saddlebred had bit committment issues when he switched to hunter...i realized i was not giving him enough support with my hands for him to feel comfy with it :)

good luck
