I LOVE this bit, and so does my boy! I purchased this for my OTTB who has a wry nose and is only really comfortable in a 3 piece bit. I started to look for something to replace his french link that was too bulky in his mouth. After trying a pricey Myler (which he hated) I decided to give this a try! It's perfect! he absolutely loves it, it fits great in his mouth and he now opens his mouth when its time to bridle! He is a very fussy and picky guy and in this he plays and mouths instead of grinding and chewing on his bit. I'm very happy with the purchase and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another!
