Pic 2 is a picture of the quick-stop that I use on my 1D horse

Where have you heard that be called a Quick Stop? That's the sam bit I use and its called a hack combination gag bit.

There is a bitless thing called a quick stop

The Jr cow horse is a good bit to introduce your horse to gag bits. Its not to aggressive but still has some slide. It also works pretty well when teaching your horse about side pull vs back pull. Like I said earlier in the thread, I teach my horses to one rein stop, so that's important to me. The only thing about it that I don't like (and why I would only use it as a training bit) is that you don't have as much independance side to side. Because it has such a short slide it will engage the whole bit with moderate pressure. All in all, not a bad training bit though, but not something I would run in.

I realize its a hack/gag combo...I have always known it as the quick stop. I also know there is a quick stop hack as well...*shrug* now days its usually called a rope nose gag bit...

Please no Tom-Thumbs. Those are NOTY for speed.

Usually in speed you use two hands for better control. Tom-Thumbs arn't for direct reining. They put way much pressure on the poll.

A horse can spin with any bit...Even without a bit. IF they know how to neck rein.It's not the bit that makes them spin.

I am a freak about having light horses just ask any of my freinds! I spend hours getting my horses light so I just run in a snaffle.
