What bit do you use?

The title says it all.

I ride Freckles in a loose ring snaffle
I ride Clary in an eggbutt snaffle.

I usually ride in an eggbutt snaffle but sometimes i ride in other variaties of snaffles.

Good old snaffles!

Riding a horse is not a gentle hobby, to be picked up and laid down like a game of solitaire. It is a grand passion. It seizes a person whole and, once it has done so, he will have to accept that his life will be radically changed.

It's funny though, but different brands of french links look SO different. I started with korsteel (the one one can find in stores around) and she didn't seem to like it much. So I ended up ordering more expensive one from dover saddlery. When it arrived I was surprised how differently it looks. She seems to like it more though (which is a good thing)...
