So I was just wondering what kind of tools everyone has in their tack room and what bits everyone likes and other tools they can't live without lol.
I have the following bits in my collection:
The third bit I usually show my reiner in. He seems to like the action of the bit the best. I tend to like corrections a little more then normal bits. The second bit was the bit I showed my other reiner in (he goes in just about anything but seemed to like this bit a bit more) it has a little too much tongue pressure for my current reiner. The top bit I use on my horse occassionally to school in, he seems to go well in that when he gets a little worried about his face. I sometimes use the fourth bit (the d-ring) to school him in and soften his face a bit, but he doesn't like it so much, my paint on the other hand loves it, but he tends to lean on it every once in a while (he still wants to set his head like a reiner instead of a hunter, what a good boy lol). O and I also have a hackamore for when I feel like playing around and seeing how well my reiner steers, he LOVES it lol.
My wishlist lol: A thick slow twist snaffle to add a little more then my d-ring to school my reiner in (and to tie him back and work on his face in the round pen). A d-ring with rollers to keep my paint occupied. I also want a germain martengale to hepl reward my current reiner when it comes to relaxing and putting his head down. I would also love a nice solid curb bit for my reiner to kind of play around with different bits to see which one he likes the best (I rode him in a few before and he seemed to like the correction a bit better which is why I have that one for him).
So whats in your tack room? What's your favorite bit?
