    Sorry I didn't get back to you! I am usually on my phone when on the forum and use the mobile version, so I don't see when people leave messages on my profile. Glad you found the right bit! I unfortunately don't have the tag from mine anymore.

    Hope I am not being a pest. I found the bit you were talking about. It was cataloged as CR370, but wasn't wrapped and had a smooth mouthpiece with the life saver. Thanx for you help. Hope it works for me as well as for you.

    DraftyAiresMum Thanx so much for responding. If you have the tag from your purchase, do you see a CR number. The one I found is wire wrapped and is cataloged as CR370. I am so sorry to bother you, but I am getting ready to ride my horse and want to use a bit that will do him justice. Thanx again for your response. If you have that CR number, I can order the same bit that your horse likes so much.

    Hi! The bit Aires loves is the Circle R (by Reinsman) Ride-Lite 3-piece smooth snaffle with copper lifesaver (that's straight off the tag lol). I got it at Tractor Supply for $21.99. It's very similar to the Sharon Camarillo TenderTouch with copper lifesaver, except the mouthpiece is smooth, not wire-wrapped.

    Just thought I'd update this thread.

    We've used this bit now twice on Aires. He LOVES it. No more chewing, no more evading. The evading (only to stop, though) was our biggest issue. He tried to evade once in this bit, then the curb kicked in and he realized that evading was getting him nowhere. His turns are crisper and he stops now with just a light touch rather than having to haul on the reins.

    Happy Belated Birthday

    You were advising me on a bit that you used on your horse. Was the bit with the lozenge(the jr. cowhorse bit) the one you were referring to in the above statement. The above is from the thread you had referred me to. Really appreciate the help.
