I love this bit. My horse had an evasion behavior when something scared him that started off with him turning away from the offending object, opening up his mouth and sticking his nose way up in the air. Since we're using this bit, the mouth and head posturing is gone and all he does now is turn away. Much easier to deal with. I really feel he's more comfortable... and that's what it's all about. This is my 2nd wtp bit. One for my black bridle and one for the brown.
