Elevator bit

Do you think elevator bits are okay being used if you have a strong horse and soft hands

Perhaps you can post a photo of exactly what elevator bit you mean. There are many kinds.

Are you talking about the three ring gag bit? I think in the right hands those can be very effective. I also like the versatility to use the top, middle, or bottom ring depending on the day and the situation.

Absolutely. I always say choose the bit that works best for horse and rider, having to use the least force. Better a stronger bit and soft hands on a strong horse, than a soft bit and constant struggle.
