    Default I want to get a french-link snaffle for my TB?

    I'm really interested in a french link snaffle for my TB. I also discovered the half moon bit and the oval lozenge. I really, really like the half moon but can only find it in two places and it's too small.

    I would prefer a D-Ring, but would be happy with an O-Ring. I can not find one online that comes in a 5 1/2" and is under $50.

    Does anyone know of any? Or a different type of bit that's like a french-link, but easier to get?

    I just want something milder for flat work, and I really don't like the "nutcracker" action.

    I have a preference for this bit versus a french link: http://www.doversaddlery.com/jp-kors...t/p/X1-010064/
    OTTBs rule, but spots are good too!

    My big guy wasn't a huge fan of a regular french link but goes beautifully in this

    The JP bits have a really nice curve to them that seems to fit the horses mouths very well. The lozenge style mouthpiece on this one doesn't annoy my horse the way a french link did while still avoiding a nutcracker type action. He loves it!
