The bits been covered and the OP seems to have the knowledge to decide if she wants to use it or not.

Just want to point out the breed is irrelevant to bit. Completely totally irrelevant. I was at Equine Affaire and we stopped to watch a clinician on "how to improve your horses gait" and he spent the entire time talking about NOT using a curb (or gag, I'm sure) and even changed a lady's bit mid-clinic (which did the trick for her). So if the bit works use it, I trust the OP on this, but PLEASE don't use it because "that's what other people do with the breed"..

I am not familiar with TWH, being Australian, but she looks like a nice, solid type. As others have pointed out I'd change her tack. the saddle looks a bit big for her little back. But what a beauty! Congratulations!

From what I see I would say she has been one cold jawed horse to have a chain chin strap and also a chain mouthpiece. Cold jawed ness does not get better on its own. Your trainer may have done some jerking and jamming on her if she does seem at all light but I would think she may not stay that way. Ride her out away from her comfortable areas and her pals and see if you can control her easily
