Bit For Sale - Special! New Metalab Antique C port bit

SPECIAL! New Metalab Antique Roger Branch C port

Still in the packaging.
Pretty for all occasions!

Some Uses and Benefits: 


  • Great for 1 handed work. 
  • Good set of brakes or tongue pressure. Has authority if needed.
  • The mouthpiece will apply pressure to the tongue ONLY when contact is made not before. 
  • The medium shank allows the rider to soften their hands (not needing to pull as you do in a snaffle).

  • Good for pushy horses or those that run through the bit. 
  • Great for fat tongued horses.
  • The curb action (with a curb chain) will use leverage and therefore will ask for more attention from the horse while keeping your hands soft.
  • The mouthpiece gives room for the tongue. It will not interfere with horse when there is slack in the reins. Horse is more comfortable. Able to swallow easily.
  • When on contact, there is no nutcracker effect as in a jointed mouthpiece.  Keeps the horse calmer!
