Bit for Sale- New Metalab Antique Low Port Correctional , S shanks

SOLD - Metalab Antique Low Port Correctional with Barrel
New or Used:  New
Manufacturer: Metalab
Mouthpiece: Low-articulated Port Correctional with copper Barrel
Shank: Antique S shank
Level: 2-3 or LTP/GTR (little tongue pressure, great tongue relief)

Price: $60Cdn (HST included) ($60+HST= $67.80 new) (shipping and handling will be based on your location)

  • Very tall purchase so the purchase to shank ratio is small. ie. 1:2.5 ratio. Mild.
  • Independent side movement of shank. Great for lateral work. Life shoulders. Great for training or corrections.
  • Copper inlay in mouthpiece. Great for salivation. Helps horse to stay calm.
  • Swivel shank for more guided lateral movement or direct reining.
  • Does have a slight curved mouthpiece. Creates more room for horse's tongue as opposed to a bit that goes across the mouth or jointed (nutcracker effect. Nasty). ie. Humane.
  • Mouthpieces are 7/16" thick and is sweet iron. ie. tastes good to the horse. No stainless steel or others that create dry mouth. Does have a tiny bit of rusting starting (which is a good thing. Confirms sweet iron material.).

Uses and Benefits:
  •  Good for horse's that know their job and/or sweet dispositions and/or older, calmer horse.
  • The medium shank allows the rider to soften their hands (not needing to pull so hard like in a snaffle - no shanks).
  • The curb action (with a curb chain) will use leverage and therefore will ask for more attention from the horse.
  • The mouthpiece gives generous room for the tongue, will not interfere with horse when there is slack in the reins. Will give a great head set when contact is made on the reins. Also will act as a great emergency brake.
