I am looking for another bit to run my mare in. She is a seasoned barrel horse as I have been running her for just about ten years. I ran her to the right for a number of years and the then about three years ago switched her to the left as she was starting to cheat on her pattern. Switching the way she ran seems to have helped her a lot and she is running like she was when I started her. I am currently running her in a Hollis Style Gag Snaffle with a twisted wire mouthpiece but I feel that I need a bit with a bit more rate and some more lift when I am running her outside. When she gets running on a larger pattern she loses some of her bend and feels like she wants to shoulder the second barrel. There are so many bits out there that I’m not sure where to start and can’t afford to buy a tack room full of bits so I am just looking for a little advice on what other people have used on horses with a similar problem. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
