It took a couple of bits to figure out my horse did not like the tongue pressure. She hated single joined bits. She was ok but still anxious in a French link. She liked the Waterford but it was too strong. I looked up bits that allowed tongue relief. I read up and watch videos of Myler bits. A kind trainer let me try her level 2 low port Myler bit and my horse was instantly happier. I purchased this bit and it’s like I’m riding a completely different horse! Much happier!
