This bit is designed for the young horse, and possesses many of the same features as the Imus Comfort Bit. The rider can start the horse by placing the reins on the middle, or snaffle, ring of the bit. Once the youngster has mastered the art of balancing the rider's weight, halting, stopping, turning, and backing on cue, a chin strap is added to the top ring of the bit, and the reins are moved down to the lower rings. This gives the bit a mild curb effect, encouraging light flexion at the poll and slight rounding through the back.
One full season of working with this bit is recommended before moving the horse into the Imus Comfort Bit for higher level training. Just think how much confusion is avoided, as the horse is already accustomed to the action of the curb bit when it is first introduced!
This bit is and invaluable tool for retraining horses that have become stiff and sour to harsher bits.
This unique bit has a mouthpiece that offers plenty of tongue relief and full range of motion encouraging the horse to drop his head into the bit rather than stiffening up against it. It boasts flush brass fittings and cheek pieces and smooth independent action from side to side. This allows the rider to work the horse laterally as well as lift a shoulder or use a leading rein. The copper roller ball in the center helps to keep the horse focused, and encourage a nice, wet mouth.Currently listing items are from tack shop closings, overstock merchandise, discontinued items and wholesale Most starting at .01 no reserve .
