Would this be an ok bit for a 9 year old that needs to move up out of a snaffle?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Definitely. This bit has a short shank and the curved mouthpiece gives the tongue relief. Make sure the curb chain that you use is not too tight and not too loose. A snug two fingers width between the horses chin groove (where the chain presses when you pull on the reins) and the curb chain is just right. Snaffles tend to let horses lean on your hands, if you are not paying attention. A short shank mullet mouth bit like this can make a horse more responsive by using the gentle "one rein at a time" approach. That means don't pull back with both reins, gently bump with one rein and when the horse backs off the bit, release the pressure and keep light contact, not light pulling. You can always stop a horse with one rein better than two. I hope my tangient of an explanation helped. A horse's mouth is a complicated thing! Always respect it.
Can you direct rein with this bit?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: With the reins attached to the snaffle ring (the ring level with the mouthpiece), yes! If you have the reins attached on the shanks (the lower ring) the leverage does not play well with direct reining. The action will be wonky and can hurt the horse's mouth.
