16th April, 2012 To bit or not to bit?

I have chosen to use a Myler Low Port Comfort snaffle combination for Rye. This will hopefully gives the subtlety to teach him what the signals through a bit mean so that I keep him soft and responsive. He is so strong through his neck and nose that I think any attempt to keep him bit-less would end up in disaster. He accepted the bit very readily today and just carried it while he was long-reined and ridden.
