Futurity 6.5 Chain
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. This mouthpiece is soft and lies across the horse’s tongue and bars comfortably without pinching. This mouthpiece offers good lift and flexibility. Mouth: 5 3/4" Cheek: 6 1/2"
JR Cowhorse Copper Lifesaver – Short or Long
Derby Smooth Medium Port 6.75″
This fixed cheek leverage bit is well suited for a finished horse. This shank creates lateral flexion and provides hip control which allows the horse to maintain balance while keeping their shoulders elevated during turns. This mouthpiece has smooth flexible bars that are softer on the corners of a horse’s mouth. The slightly taller port moves freely at the joints and relieves tongue pressure. This is a good bit for speed events. Mouth 5 3/4" Cheek: 6 3/4"
Bob Avila Sweet Iron Twist Ring Snaffle
The sweet iron has a very appealing taste for the horse. The size of this twisted snaffle will offer a lot of feel in a horse's mouth, while remaining very gentle. Weighted rings encourage a lower head carriage.
Mouth: 5 1/4", Rings: 3"
NOTE: This bit will rust when exposed to moisture. This creates a sweet taste in the horse's mouth and promotes salivation.
