The ultimate bit for comfort and communication. This bit is designed to take the 'pinch' out of the snaffle. Making the bit more comfortable in the horse's mouth so that they can concentrate better on the rider's cues. This bit measures 5". With the curved design of the mouthpiece we have found that this bit will fit a large variety of horses that a standard 5" bit would not fit. We have sold thousands of these bits without a single return. This bit has been a very valuable asset to many rider's that were having troubles with their bits prior to using this one. We use this bit to start horses with and it works great on older horses as well.
