This is a great bit for elevating a horse's shoulder going into a turn. It aids the rider in holding a horse's shoulder steady, maintaining a more optimal body position around a barrel. Very fair and forgiving, the mouthpiece is set forward on the shank, which helps increase lift and lateral movement. This bit also helps to maintain forward motion on horses that anticipate a turn. The Shoulder Holder is also a great tool for retraining manmade habits in aged horses
