Professional Choice Snaffle Gag Bit
JR Cowhorse Dogbone – Short or Long
Short: This bit is excellent for a horse with a soft mouth. The gag cheek provides elevation in the shoulders.

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"
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"
