    I got the first bit :) I jsut started riding my mare in it to transition her for showing WP and she is going wonderfully in it! Everyone at the barn complimented us on how well she looked and what a change since I started using this bit! She is really happy in it and very responsive! I would try a BA bit I think it was only like $30 or something like that so in your budget!

    Going to disagree with you on this.

    Cutters, reiners, etc use broken mouth pieces with shanks. I'm sure you have seen some excellent video out there.

    I ride with a shanked broken bit. I use two hands when I am working cattle. Yet I use the same bit one handed when I trail ride or ride in parades or carrying a flag.
