2 of my horses just finished up 60 days of training. I had the trainer use this bit for the last week. I notice a lot less resistance to the bit and less head tossing. This bit helps my horse realize if he rounds out nicely he gets more tongue relief. Great bit! I'll be purchasing another for my other horse.
We’ve moved from a Myles d ring snaffle to this to hit the trails. I have a forward moving national show horse and this bit gives just enough leverage with the short shanks and forward tilt to be comfortable on the trail. Like any bit, it’s the hands using it that make it or break it. I also love the independent movement for right and left side work. We can get a lot of finesse with little effort with this bit.
