Bit Effect

This is a video of several young gals jumping the Icelandic Horse bareback. You can see how the jointed snaffle affects the horse and his mouth.

The answer is not to tie the horse's mouth shut on the negative impact on the mouth by the bit. Perhaps a different bit, maybe non-jointed mouthpiece would help, or perhaps less contact on the reins.
