    Default Mikmar bits

    Has anyone used a mikmar bit XC? I was especially looking at the 2 ring, which is this one:

    I didn't know if it would be too much or not do enough XC. my hunter trainer uses it as a training tool for pullers and thought it might help me on XC.

    After trying everything else on the face of the planet, my horse goes xc in the mikmar combo bit. It's amazing for him because he likes to get his head up and get strung out and this keeps him forward, round and I can collect him very easily and remain soft. I wish I had tried him in it when I was riding him at intermediate. It would have saved me a lot of hassle! But he's really great in it.

    I don't know about the 2 ring, it's a different mouth piece.
