Milton’s new bit, a flexible mouth butterfly from Driving Essentials. We were concerned that the heavy shanks of a standard driving bit would swamp his delicate Thoroughbred face.
He goes better in this than he did in his previous bit, a flexible mouth, loose ring snaffle. Weird, because the mouthpiece is the same & we use the snaffle rings on this one. The only difference is the slight distance to the headstall attachment. Yet he is clearly happier in the mouth and goes more freely forward.
Thank you for reading,
