A CHANGE OF BITS
When I’m working with a horse to settle into ranch riding, it sometimes helps to change his bit so he can settle into the desired ranch riding frame. A light correctional bit or an Argentine snaffle can help. If the horse is younger than 6, he can be shown in a snaffle or hackamore in most breed association events. This differs from most NRHA events, which don’t allow snaffles or hackamores.
