Haha :) At least you asked about these things instead of just pretending you know like my dad does! He knows probably less than you but the ignorance brings into him trying to say things and making himself sound like an a**. I commend you for your curiosity!

EDIT: Amp, we posted at the same time again. XD A Tom thumb is not a snaffle mainly because it has shanks. A snaffle refers to a non-leverage bit, not just a jointed mouthpiece. A snaffle can be a snaffle an have differance types of mouthpieces so long as there is no leverage.

For bit information, see my signature.

In all seriousness, is there really a kind of tree called a hackamore?

So it's not a snaffle simply because of what's "outside" the horse's mouth that helps control it? I always considered it a snaffle just because of the way that the part that goes inside the mouth is made (if that made sense). Every site I look at it says the name of similar bits to that along with western snaffle..

They may say it, but that doesn't make it correct. A snaffle, by very definition of the term, is defined solely by the lack of shanks/curb/leverage and by it's direct 1:1 ratio action. The mouthpiece does not matter, and can be virtually anything.

Here is a quick chart I made of Western tack (please excuse the blotches where I messed up, lol):

And here is an English one I stumbled upon, this particular set of tack being jumping gear:

Sorry about that Bubba, I was thinking Hackberry. Heck I told you I was ignorant. I hope now that you believe me.
