Which bit to use to avoid swelling at the corners of the mouth.

Fresian mare used for hacking and dressage. Goes well in a snaffle and have tried loose ring and fixed ring but always has swelling at the corners of the mouth after being ridden.

Hi Jenny,

What thickness is the bit that you are currently using? Have you tried using a little lubricant, like Vaseline on corners of her lips and on the branches of the bit? This helps everything to slide without causing any friction.
