There's not a lot to say about this bit. Probably one of the most popular and useful bits in the performance horse business. The forerunner of the many copies out there. This one however won't bend, break, and generally fall apart like the imports. Don perfected this bit for function and balance. The mouthpiece is a copper alloy that promotes a soft mouth. The shanks are stainless steel. This would be a great bit for the horse that has graduated out of the snaffle bit and is ready for curb pressure and some port.
