Another fun blog hop from Viva Carlos- what bit I use and why!
Ellie and Wilbur have a few things in common:
* both babies so I'm not having the deal with corrections
* both have soft mouths and I've got fairly quiet hands
* both are lazy so it's more about getting them to actually go forward than any need for control
Wilbur has gone in a Loose Ring Copper Slow Twist and a Loose Ring Happy Mouth. Ellie goes in a basic curved D- we started her in a Happy Mouth but we wanted her to have some metal in her mouth for her to pull on (she had a habit of over-collecting in the beginning and we wanted her to stretch out and take the bit).
Polly has been the biggest pain in the bit-butt. She chews through her Happy Mouth D in a matter of weeks and those things are not cheap! I threw my Sprenger on her bridle and she HATED it. I almost put the Happy Mouth on Smartpak auto-ship.
Yeah, Loki chewed through his happy mouth pretty easily too. Otherwise, I like those bits.ReplyDelete
Hahaha she's keeping the bit companies in business :)ReplyDelete
