I've never asked HOW on this forum.
Riosdad... I don't know you and by no means to I intend to offend you. You did offend me though. I admit I don't know a ton and I find that I can get some very helpful advice and information in this forum. I also find that there are many people that I can help with my own knowledge.

To claim that you don't need to ask for help seems ignorant to me. What makes the best trainers truly amazing is their ability to admit that they don't know everything. They are constantly learning and refining. They appreciate that other people have knowledge or experience they may not. There are probably quite a few people on here that have knowledge you don't and who could help you improve and refine upon your skills and knowledge.

It saddens me that you put yourself above the rest of the people, or at least a good portion of them, in this forum. I'm glad you know so much more than me. I respect you for it. Does that make me a non-entity here for your amusement? No.

We all have some learning to do methinks.

OK, Back to the bit people.

I don't believe the American TT's are inherently bad. Many, many horses ride in them just fine every day. There is just the potential for miss-communication with them in my opinion. There are other bits (Like the one the Iride posted) that I prefer, however my horses liked their TT...and it has been a "go to" bit for many years.

In the end I prefer to use the mildest bit with the best communication possible for your particular discipline.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

1 Chronicles 28:20
