Short: This bit is excellent for a horse with a soft mouth. The gag cheek provides elevation in the shoulders. All of these bits should be adjusted to fit with one wrinkle in the horse's mouth and a loose curb strap to allow 2-3 fingers. This mouthpiece works similar to a smooth snaffle. The twist adds bar pressure helps to sharpen the focus of a finished horse. Mouth: 5 1/8" Cheek: 5"
Long: This bit will give more leverage while maintaining a soft feel. A step up from the short shank allowing the rider to move forward to the next level of training. All loose curb strap to allow 2-3 fingers. Mouth: 5 1/4" Cheek: 8"
