Default When do you go to a two rein?

Just curious what different people use as a guide of when to switch a horse into the two rein. My horse isn't ready yet but I love to hear different peoples thoughts of what you like your horse to be able to do before you go to a two rein.....

Default two-rein

I like too ride sometimes about a year to two years in the hackmore. I will have already had the horse in a smaller maybe 3/8th bosal, for a few months before i introduce the bit. Then ill ride for while still in full control with just a bosal, but too have the horse carry the bit before a while before i start introducing ques. I think it helps him get use too the weight of the bit i have selected, and he gets use, and is comfortable with the bit just being in the mouth. He gets too play around with the roller er whatever.
