    I honestly haven't tried the rolled mouth since I started making them. Between winter and being pregnant I'll probably be pretty much out of the saddle until June... :bawling:I would say the rolled mouth is more "bit" like, since most regular bits are round. They also seem to be a little stiffer, although they should still conform pretty well. I wouldn't be able to do a built in chin strap on the rolled mouth.


    A little off topic, but thanks to a little push and faith from one of our lovely members, if anyone is interested in getting a leather mouth put on different cheeks, pm me.

    @Mayelix and @Smartee Pants I looked a little more into the Meroth style with the chin strap. I'm thinking I could do $40 shipped on that style, what do you guys think?

    I was thinking about these bits for a while now, and really wanted to try but again 100$ plus nearly 60$ shipping to the UAE I wasn't too keen to click that purchase now button, now I'm more willing so I would also love a Meroth type in 5" but can you do more of a D ring? Maybe even with black D ring (I know I'm asking a lot here)

    With or without the chin strap?

    The regular snaffle is $30 shipped in the US, rolled or flat mouth option.
    The snaffle with the built in chin strap is $40 shipped, flat mouth only.

    I'm going to have a Pelham, full cheeck, and offset D (used cheeks) available in any size mouth if anyone is interested! Prices for these 3 bits are going to be as follows (shipping is to the US, international shipping would be additional but seems to be reasonable):
    Pelham: $50 shipped
    Full cheeck: $40 shipped
    Offset D: $40 shipped

    I don't know if anyone would be interested, but I can also make a half-breed snaffle (Snaffle with a nose band) with a leather mouth.

    Thank you so much! I loved making it, so glad you and Shoney are happy with it! Thanks for sharing a picture of it as well, I am a total air head and never remember to take pictures.
