I have slowly changed all my horses over to this bit. It is wonderfully soft in the corners and lays well in the horses mouth. It is especially good for horses that have problems with bits or young horses beginning their training with a bit. The wings lay softly on the side of the mouth and prevent any pinching or dislocating of the bit. I have had an older stallion that always makes a huge fuss when he is ridden in any bit and he is completely fine with the wing bit. I have not tried the single broken bit but the double broken has been fantastic.
