Heyo I’m looking for some bit recommendations! I have a horse that I’ve been retraining, he came to me with a VERY hard mouth. Oh yah he would just bolt and there was no stopping him. Anyways we’ve been retraining to a snaffle (he was ridden western in a big curb before) and it’s been going very well!
We’ve now progressed to jumping full courses… We’re starting to do consistent 3-3’3ft. We’re able to get around but I don’t have the sensitivity that I’m beginning to need with the higher fences.
So I’m looking for a LITTLE stronger bit. I’ve ridden in a rubber mullen mouth pelham when I go off property for shows etc and I think he likes the mouth piece on that. But I don’t want to ride in the pelham all the time, so I’m looking for a bit that has a little more control/“bite” than just my simple d-ring snaffle.
I play around in different events but we do xc/jumpers/hunters mainly.
