Looking for a gentle bit for a 3 1/2 year old Friesian Stallion?

We have a 3 ½ year old Friesian stallion which is currently being backed and I am planning on doing some dressage and driving with him when he is older. We are using a loose ring snaffle on him at the moment but he gets a bit strong at times. I would like something gentle for him as he is still a baby and he just gets a bit excited.

We would recommend the happy tongue loose ring bit for him initially. This bit reduces tongue pressure and is very soft and the sweet iron encourages salivation thus making it more easily accepted by the horses. However, you may find that you will need to progress to either the control plate or the elliptical loose ring.
