  • Independent side movement of shank. Great for lateral work.
  • Copper inlay in mouthpiece. Great for salivation. Helps horse to relax.
  • Swivel shank for more guided lateral movement or direct reining.
  • 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.
  • Ported mouthpieces give more room for the horse to lift the bit and swallow so it's more humane to have a port instead of a flat/mullen or jointed mouthpiece.
  • Mouthpieces are 7/16" thick. New larger thickness available as preferred by English riders.
  • Most mouthpieces are sweet iron. ie. tastes good to the horse. No stainless steel or others that create dry mouth. 

Some Uses and Benefits:

  •  Multiple rein positions good for training.
  • Middle ring acts as a snaffle for training.
  • Bottom ring acts like a curb bit. 
  • Good for English riders who like the look of the shank.
  • The short 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 some room for the tongue. I start horses in this mouthpiece. It will not interfere with horse when there is slack in the reins.
