Where to find a nice Baucher French link or oval mouth bit?
I like the JP Kortsteel type of bits, since they have curved bars.
But I don't think they make a french link Baucher, that I can find.
The regular Korsteel looks like it might pinch - since that one has the seam between the bars and the shank right at edge of horse's mouth.
Anyone have a Baucher with a double joint that they like?
I have the Steubben one and it's beautifully made. The mouth is German silver and the upper rings are slightly turned out so it doesn't pinch. While it isn't cheap, it's half the price of the HSS version (and twice the price of the Centerline or Happy Mouth). My horse went okay in his Centerline version ($31), but he seems to like the Steubben better, and I like the way it fits better.
