    Default Anyone know where I can find this bit?

    http://i394.photobucket.com/albums/p...y/2ringbit.jpg

    EDITED to add: I have a horse who has a lovely soft mouth. Problem is, he wants to drop beind the bit; I am looking for something he will lean into, and which is still strong enough so the rider can get him to listen.

    He is a jumper, so unconventional bets are fine.
    I have talked Maggie into running for President. She will be running on the Curly Haired Dog ticket. Her campaign slogan is "Don't be douchy or I'll pee on your carpet".

    Mikmar maybe? I think that's a Double Ring Snaffle?

    THANKS jse.

    Yes, it is a MikMar. I just went to their site and found it!!!

    Called a Watson Snaffle

    However, the one you posted a picture of (Called a Wilson snaffle) is about 1/4th the price.

    Yea for COTH and nice people!!

    http://www.beval.com/Products/Scourier-Bit/1022015.aspx I actually believe it's this one, because the second pair of rings seem attached to the bit.

    Hunterrider, you may be right. I can see that the Scourier is different from the Wilson (which has one attached ring and one unattached ring).

    I cannot tell which bit the Mikmar is like.

    A Wilson is considered a pretty harsh bit due to the jaw squeezing aspect of the floating rings. Often used for driving for that reason. With a bit of luck you've already tried one on your soft mouthed horse tho!

    Agree--that's not a bit for a soft mouthed horse.

    For what you describe, it's not the bit, it's the hands that use it. A good, alert rider can keep a horse from dropping back before it happens.

    Why get complicated? Simple snaffle does the job more often than not. If you want him to lean on it, use a Mullen mouth snaffle.

    But it's more a rider problem than a horse one, IME.

    Another vote for something other than the scourrier-- the mouthpiece for those is usually squared off and quite sharp-- my soft-mouthed horse who also dropped behind the bit was hugely offended by it.

    Wilson snaffles are pretty common in the driving world, http://www.idealharness.com/product_...oducts_id=3114

    Wouldn't that double ring bit be likely to pinch the lips?

    I have such a horse; soft, and will go behind the vertical with pulling, but a bit of a jerk and needs to be set back occasionally. I use the shortest shank Tom Thumb with a nice fat snaffle mouthpiece and padded curb chain, and 99% of the time, the curb rein is draped, but ready for action on my little finger.
