anyone got some suggestions on which bit i could try?
have 14.2 tb x welsh mare. 15 years old and now lovely! tried eggbutt snaffle when i got her 11 months ago , but bolted twice and really hard to stop her. so put her in a kimblewick, as that is what she had had previously as a sj pony club. she is fab on roads, but you hit turf and you're off so need good breaks. however she is throwing her head up in the air when stoping cantering, and leaning on the bit so i feel like i'm tugging at her.
have tried a continental snaffle dutch gag with two reins, but find it too much of a handful .
was thinking of trying a dr bristol or french link. someone suggested a pelham, but i'm just not sure!!!
have lost faith in my local tack shop as they told me to use just one rein with the gag, so feel like they're not where to get my advice from re bitting.
she has a high head carriage, wears a martingale.
a very lively ride when on grass!! perfect on roads but need something with a bit of breaks!
any suggestions would be fab. there are so many different types of bit out there that they're confusing me!!!!!!!
ideally want something she will listen to, lower head carriage, and not be able to get hold of to take off!
