I have a big collection of bits. Many of them I have never used personally but some how have made their home in my tack box. When people sell tack lots, they usually throw in a bunch of bits that they aren't using anymore. And I take them and put them lovingly in to my barn, because I might one day need one of them. I've only pictured are some of our snaffle bits, I should do a post on the terrifying western bits I have aquired over the years...yikes!
Well George is coming home soon and he is going to need a bit. I'm not sure what kind to use on him. For Piney I used this Myler Comfort Snaffle D-ring. It was the bit every horse at my last barn used. I liked it well enough and he liked it well enough. I was told that TB's have low pallates so the Myler Comfort snaffles are a good match because it can't jab the top of their mouth as badly as a traditional snaffle.
I have been ridng Pistol in the Myler Comfort Snaffle D-ring. He responds well enough but I am thinking I might switch him to this Myler Comfort Snaffle.
This is a Korsteel French Link hollow mouth that might be a candiate for the new horse. But I don't have any experience with a french link, so I'm not sure the pros or cons.
There is this Stubben full cheek hollow mouth. But I've never used a full cheek and don't know the pros or cons of these either.
or this full cheek.
I have a couple of these O-ring hollow snaffles. So if you want one...I can sell you one.
