I have a tom thumb I was given, but I don't like single-jointed bits, so I don't really want to use it. Some bits I'm considering: Bit 1 Bit...

    I have a D- Ring Snaffle and I was wondering what a good bit would be to try on my horse because he will NOT respond to my current bit, without me doing a one-rein stop. I ride western with him. He is a 15 yr old quarter horse. I have had him for 3 years. I used to ride him in a "quick-stop" by...
