Your Go-To Bits? (Quarantine Questions Ep.2)
Hey there! As y'all probably know, their is a worldwide epidemic thats cancelling shows, rodeos, etc. So for boredom (and possible entertainment) I present to you: Quarentine Questions! (Yes, I know not all of us are on quarentine). Where I will probably ask questions similar to these and possible tack reviews. *I am in NO WAY using these questions to find something for my horse or to ask a question that relates to me* These questions are open to riders of all disiplines!
Here is my answer (I ride western, barrel racing):
O-ring snaffle: I think we all have one of these laying around, but I don't use it since neither of my horses are a fond of it.
D-ring snaffle: I use a smooth snaffle version of these made by Turn Two. I use it all the time on my barrel horses, but use it mainly on my older gelding Don Julio.
Eggbutt snaffle (with french link): I used to use this on Tequila for about the first year I had her. I really loved this bit but changed to a shanked bit after she needed a bit more 'woah'.
Delight bit (chain snaffle): This is Tequila's competition bit for barrel racing. Its has about less than an inch of gag and is a light mouthed bit.
Junior Cowhorse (three peice with roller): This is Don Julios competition bit. I really like the mouthpeice and the way it is built. I originally got it for Tequila, but she didn't like. It was recommended by people on this forum and I will definitely recommend it to others!
Anyways, hope everyone is doing well and remember to stay safe!
