  1. The Perfect Bit?

    I'm not a fan of the tomb thumb either, but the only other bits I own is a wonder gag (which I don't like) curbs with medium ports, a long shank with a double twisted mouth with broken middle. I don't want to go out and buy a bit that won't work. I want some idea or what to get. And as I stated, I'm working on rate. So that's been helping a little with his stopping. I'm just looking for. Bit that gives me a little help. I need a bit that will help me communicate with him, yet isn't very harsh.
  2. The Perfect Bit?

    I have a 7 year old gelding, who I'm starting to train in games. He has good flex, and we are working on rate. Ever sense I started training him I've had problems finding a good bit for him. He tends to like being on the bit, and I'm working on correcting that. I prefer not to use severely harsh bits. He has a pretty soft mouth, so any bit with a port or anything of the such is out of the question. But, my problem is he doesn't have good brakes. So I need a gentle bit, but one that gives me brakes. What bit do you recommend me to use? Would I be better off trying a hack on him? Currently right now he's in a tomb thumb, because that's the only bit I own he likes and listens in. Any advice would be great!
