I know there are lots of different opinions on bits to use and not use with a worcester noseband because of the lifting action (makes jointed bits harsher etc) but would it work with a loose ring or would this just defeat the object because it is attached to a loose ring? If that makes sense!! My tb is very fussy with his mouth, constantly grinding and when he very stressy he tries to get tongue over, also has started snatching. I would go down the bitless route but would like him to eventually chill & accept the bit. (teeth all up to date so not a problem) He does have a very small mouth & small tongue.
