This shank is designed for the stronger horse who still needs the flexibility of the gag cheek. The longer shank and gag action provides more poll pressure which encourages greater flexion and gives you more control.
The traditional snaffle has a slightly curved mouthpiece so it is easy for a horse to carry and is comfortable. This mouthpiece will apply even pressure to the corners of a horse’s mouth.
Lifter, Short Shank, Two Piece Twisted Wire Mouthpiece
This is a bit for starting my barrel training or on horses that have a sensitive mouth that do not need much bit. It is nice and soft, offering complete rate and lift for turns.
Tapered wedge closed cell foam. Use to fill the small gap or space behind the horses shoulder and under the front of the saddle. Shims are recommended in order to support, adjust for a better fit, or promote a more level fit. Place shims just under the front of the saddle and on top of the saddle pad as needed. Package of two.
