Any of you used this bit or a version of it before? I’m debating it for my 10 yr old gelding, since we use the loose ring snaffle version for dressage and jumping right now. However, whenever we get back into jumping, we’ve 1-2 weeks of ‘discussions’ over what speed and how much to listen to me. I intensely dislike having to yank to get him to pull up and slow down, I’d much rather not use my upper arm strength to get him to listen. (and as an aside, once he’s into jumping again he’s good and goes primarily from the seat, so please, no training lectures here. This is just management-of-overly-excited-horse who loves to jump a wee bit too much).
Feedback? advice? Comments on the poll pressure? How have horses reacted? Etc.
