Sliding figure 8 vs. rings
Does it matter? I recently ordered the Nunn-Finer figure 8 with the rings and padding and the buckle is right in between my horses lips. Because of the rings and the padding it really isn't very adjustable.
I would imagine that the sliding figure 8 would be much more adjustable. Can it be adjusted to go up over the points of my horses cheekbones? Is there a big difference between the two outside of appearance?
I'm trying to not spend a fortune. Any other opinions would be welcome.
