    I stumbles across this blog, and founf a section about bits. It was talking about snaffle bits. From this post, it seems as if snaffle bits are bad for horses?

    It won’t let me copy and paste the article, but I took pictures of it, and I found it

    Single jointed snaffles are not my bit of choice – I prefer the French link style. However, the severity of a bit depends a LOT on the rider’s hands. A rider with good hands won’t need to use the bit much at all, and a well-trained horse can be soft in any bit, or with no bit at all. There is another thread on bitting here, which I think you would find interesting. It might answer a lot of questions for you.

    It is never the horse's fault
