    But the OPs bit didn't look like a Duo .. looked double jointed (French link).

    Is that considered a Mullen Mouth (or in that category)? It is one piece, but never thought about it being a cable type of piece.

    ETA: just googled a duo .. wow, that gives new meaning to Mullen...

    purplnurpl, I asked if the bit shown 'bends' and the OP said, yes it did ... that means it is NOT a single piece unless it is a wire / cable or something bendy ... that is why I made the comment I...

    Not meaning to be rude, but here is your inbreeding.

    It used to be much more common for local chapters to bring people...

    You can't expect riders to understand what is going wrong when the available education is so hit and miss.

    Ok, I agree with many things that are being addressed here, but I would like to add that I think we are sorely lacking in an area of providing easy access to information on developing horsemanship...

    They don't want to make it easy. They want to make you suffer :)

    I don't blame the rider's per se, I blame our organizations.

    Drugs in the hunter/ jumpers combined with a poor foundation ... dressage lacks a good foundation ... although it's improving, but for the number of people that are interested ... insufficient...

    I agree with Poltroon on using transitions and on using an alternate releasing rein. You also can stroke the horse's neck with your loose rein and pick it back up without any disruption.

    :lol: something has to be communicated.

    It doesn't have to necessarily be thought of as a correction, or it can be, but more as a way of communicating what you want and what you expect.

    I don't own any thin mouthpiece bits or any twisted wire bits, double, triple or corkscrew.

    The last 'event' horse I rode at another barn used to run away with people and he was wearing a...

    Anyone who thinks this bit being used to 'bump' a horse once or twice until they listen to just turning the hand up a bit (lifting) is a serious "ouch" for most horses should maybe get in touch with...

    This varies a lot from one region to another. Some areas are consistently higher quality everything overall, other areas are a nightmare, but also depends on who is running things at the time.

    I believe you that it bends (from your answering my question above, and it looks like it bends), but I always thought a Mullen Mouth anything was a single bar .... next thing you know we'll be...

    I don't hate the sport, I hate the attitude of the idiots running things. My experience is that it counts on volunteers so that tends to skew things a tad.

    I just love it when the President of my...
