Edit: I almost forgot to give credit where credit is due. It's no secret I love Viva Carlos' blog hops, and the latest is no exception
So, without further ado, here's the bit I'm using with Jazz!
It's a level one myler eggbutt comfort snaffle (that's a mouthful, literally). It is the one and only bit Jazz has ever had, and I absolutely love it. As I'm sure I've gushed about before, Jazz has a wonderfully soft mouth, and I love the myler because it's essentially the gentlest bit I know of.
|This picture shows the curve of the mouthpiece. It's also got nice copper bands.|
Jazz was started on bridlework before I ever knew her, and at the rescue she came from, they always start horses with mylers. They have a nice curve and the joint in the middle helps keep it from poking them in the roof of the mouth too much.
|This is just a little more detailed picture of the fancy sides.|
|Jazz doesn't seem to mind either. (This picture is from last summer, and I would like to note that I am not wearing a helmet in this picture because I wanted a nice photo of me on my horse and took off my helmet only for the sake of taking the picture)|
