The 3 Piece Argentine Snaffle Bit is great for a young or inexperienced horse because it is a really mild bit. It works mostly off tongue and bar pressure, and we like how the mouth piece conforms to the mouth. Having two breaks keeps the pressure distribution even, starts to add tongue pressure, yet still allows for independent control of each side of the horse as with a regular snaffle mouth. Also known as a dogbone mouth piece. As a side note, it's also a great horse shopping bit when you try new horses to buy, you can tell right away if they still had a soft mouth or not by using this mild bit.
