Sunday we went to Murdoch’s and I got a new bit for Athena. She was in this bit, a short shank snaffle with a copper mouthpiece.
I bought a medium port curb bit, which I tried out yesterday and she responds very well in it. She actually flexes at her poll when I ask her to!!!
As you know, I am a barrel racer. I need a soft and responsive horse to get around the barrels fast. This bit is a little, *what’s the right word for it*, sharper. With gentle hands it is a very,very effective bit.
