(3 ring dutch gag)
I want to try my pony in a lozenge mouthpiece bit. He's currently in a flexi mullen dutch gag with 2 rings on the snaffle ring.
I want to try him in copper rather than stainless steel as its meant to be warmer? However, I can't find any 2 ring dutch gags or hanging cheek snaffles with the copper lozenge mouthpiece (ie. the same cheekpiece as he has atm).
Could I use the 3 ring dutch gag with the reins on the snaffle ring (it will look stupid I know, but is there any other reason why I shouldnt?), or should I just try him in a plain loose ring snaffle? Is there much difference in the action of these two bits (if reins are on snaffle ring on both)?
