    How about no bit?! Your horse will have a happy life without one and trust me he won’t miss it. (Watch Rick Gore Horsemanship on YouTube) Look him up! What harm can it do?

    @ JesOkiRox any bit that is not a snaffle will hurt your horses mouth because the reins are further away from the bit, so if you love your horse and care for it please don’t use them there cruel and should be band.

    I like to do showjumping and cross country with my horse, but most of the time she can be hard to stop, and tends to almost always rush at the jumps which is really annoying! I currently ride her in a D Ring Snaffle bit I think it is, but i’m wanting one that ‘s a bit stronger so I can pull her up easier. I know alot of people who use a Dutch Gag for x-country and was wondering if using this bit would help at all or if you have any advice? Thanks!

    Personally I prefer regular strength bits or weaker bits. I hate thinking that I’m hurting the horse lol. I’m very gentle with horses though, and sometimes perhaps a bit too gentle (which does sometimes turn out to be a negative for me). That being said, I think that starting out gentle with a horse then working up to the point that he or she responds in the manner that you’re looking, with the least bit of pressure, makes things both better for the horse and rider.
