My horse and I are both new to western, and I'm trying to figure out what bit to ride him in.
For shows, I have to ride with one hand. He's calm, but he doesn't collect his head no matter how collected his back end is. He's fine when I ride with two hands and I'm able to remind him to stay on the bit, but when I practice with one hand, we're a lost cause.
Would a leverage bit help? Or another bit that you suggest?
