A few days ago, someone made mention on one of the Western threads about the low palates in Morgans and how that can be problematic in bitting. I was thinking I’d posted a topic on this at some point in time, but I just did a search and couldn’t find anything. I like to use a simple, copper eggbutt snaffle for pleasure riding, but have often wondered if this is the best bit for Morgans. I’ve heard the joint in the snaffle, which is intended to allow for independent lateral control, can hit the roof of the mouth and become uncomfortable on a Morgan.
Has anyone done much experimenting with Morgan bitting? I know it can vary so much from horse to horse. But I’m curious if anyone has noticed Morgan specific trends in what seems to work. I would guess something like the Myler Comfort Snaffles could be a good option.
