This is a great bit for elevating a horse's shoulder going into a turn. It aids the rider in holding a horse's shoulder steady, maintaining a more optimal body position around a barrel. Very fair and forgiving, the mouthpiece is set forward on the shank, which helps increase lift and lateral movement. This bit also helps to maintain forward motion on horses that anticipate a turn. The Shoulder Holder is also a great tool for retraining manmade habits in aged horses
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.
This little bit is deceiving. While it does not have a lot of whoa, it works well on horses that have a lot of natural rate. Has a good deal of lift and a lot of flex. Used by a good many Barrel Racers in competition. It is a good bit for slow work and training. 964
