Cross Country Bit Question
I have a WB cross who goes in a KK in dressage and he actually does well in it jumping. He is not green and we do fine XC but he can be a little bit of a bully and all my other horses go in snaffles. He only gets this way XC - he just gets excited and he seems to be having a lot of fun - he has schooled a ton and shown a bit.... more dressage only than eventing though he is really more event horse than dressage.
Point is - for those of you on big boned, strong horses that tend to get up for XC - what bits do you switch to? I like to ride in light soft bits all the time. He did go in a full cheek Dr. B XC at our last event but he made no difference. I thought about putting him in a running martingale but again, I am a less is more person - so I am asking what you all do first.
