Okay for now I have a Tom Thumb Bit for my QH Gelding. But he doesn't seem to be liking this bit. I want a western bit that is easy to use, gentle in his mouth and won't pinch or hurt him in any way. Please give me ideas.
The Tom thumb is the worst...lol...doesn't even make a good paper weight...in my opinion.
If your horse is past the point of a snaffle, I really like the square hinged port with a short shank. You can ride with an indirect or direct rein with it. It has a little tongue relief and a fairly low port depending on which model you get. Posted via Mobile Device
That sounds perfect!! Oh my goodness thank you!! Because he used to do this thing were he would back up, so I got my friend to come over and check on him and she said it must be the bit...its hurting him. Lol are these easy to find in any horse tack store?
Make sure its not just the bit and not other problems but if you want an example do a search for Bob Avila bits. In his collection you will see this bit. Myler makes a similar one and so does Cactus and Tom Balding. That will give you an idea where to start and differnt bits for different price ranges. Hopefully that fixes your problem...that's an easy fix. Posted via Mobile Device
