My horse likes to cross his jaw and sometimes to poke his tongue out. He chews quite a bit on it as well. I have been told he has small bars and a very soft palate on the top of his mouth but there are soo many options of bits I don't know what to try fir

Hi Kate,

Please would you let me know what bit you are currently using with this horse? This will tell me what pressure he is resisting against, I will then be able to make a recommendation for you.

Hi Kate,

Thank you for getting back to me!

I recommend the Loose Ring Ultra Comfy Lock up. The Ultra Comfy is double locked so that it cannot fold downwards or backwards, this means that it retains its shape in the horse’s mouth, and it eliminates any nut cracker action.  The mouth piece is also angled on the sides, so that it goes up and over the tongue, this greatly reduces tongue pressure.  Due to its’ shape, it will also fit the horse with a narrow bottom jaw without causing any discomfort.

Regards,
