This is an exercise bit and soft ground bit. It works well on a horse with a natural rate at the barrels but needs to keep his rear end under him and stop the swinging. This is a good bit to exercise your horse during the week to get away from the gag bit action. It works on the headset and poll rather than flexing.
The square twist gag provides more authority than the plain snaffle and is good on stronger willed or pushy horses.
The longer 8" shanks enhance the leverage and further increases the control of this bit.
This bit is good for hard ground.
If you need more control or to keep the pull out of your horse.
Practice with this bit until you feel any stiffness or pull then use the draw bit to soften the horse in the poll. Practice your faster runs in this bit.
Horses that are not hard to set or control will get a lot of control out of this bit.
5" stainless steel shanks, 5" straight bar "sweet iron" mouthpiece.
