The shorter shank and slight gag makes the Tender Touch an excellent transition or intermediary bit. It can also be used in competitive events providing the horse is balanced and responsive to the rider's cues. Adjust to neutral position of one wrinkle, two fingers between the curb and chin. This bit is designed to apply pressure at the corners of the lip, across the tongue, on the bars and at the curb. 754
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.
