    All of my horses simply HATED the taste of rubber. My first horse spent his two workouts with a similar rubber snaffle trying to push the bit out with his tongue. My horses did not like rubber bit...

    If your goal was show jumping I would say Holsteiner. I have often wondered the past few years what that cross would do! Come to think of it a ASB dam for the NSH instead of an Arab dam would be...

    Some horses just do not seem to really like loose ring bits, and they prefer something more stable in their mouths, like an egg-butt. Or you could try a Boucher snaffle which also tends to be more...

    If I remember correctly many years ago I spent under $300 USD for the Corrector, "sock" and shims. For the pad (looks like a dressage pad) it was more. This was for an English Corrector.
