Hey all!

I recently started riding with a trainer again, and she recommended using a different bit for drill than I do for WP and showing.
I currently ride my horse in a sweet iron medium ported curb bit which she works great in, and have tried her in a sweet iron jr cowhorse. She just didn't click in that bit so I'm on the hunt for one that'll work. She has great brakes, moves off leg, and stops off your seat, but since this is her first year on drill and our large, noisy competitions are coming up, I want something that gives me control if I need it. It needs to be a western style curb bit, to fit into the drill teams requirements. Thanks!

(I'll try to attach a link of the exact bit I'm using currently)

Reinsman Circle R Ported Bit, CR651 - Tractor Supply Co.

Thanks! I'll look into that bit, I just want to make sure it's not too similar.

She seems to go best in a solid bit, then a 3 piece or French link. She doesn't like a single joint at all.
