Me too. Have for years. My old guy is pretty heavy and strong on trails, so I use a Waterford on him. Not a gentle snaffle, but it works for us. Many I know use regular d snaffles. But I would say, if the TT is working, and you stay off it unless you really need it, stick with it-at least on the trails. You may want to do some ring work to get your horse listening better. I just never bothered with my old guy-should have, but he has been semi retired for several years and I have other projects.
