I prefer a ported bit over a single jointed bit. I have over 60 bits here due to trying different ones out to see what my horses work best in.
My daughter's poor mare has been through a lot of bits over the years. A month or so ago my son wanted to ride her in his bridle, which still had his pony's double jointed curb on it. It was like she was another horse entirely. She loves that bit. Finding what bit a horse works best in and be a lot of trial and error. A hope the one you got works well for you. I know it can be frustrating when they can't actually tell you what they want. Posted via Mobile Device
