Bubba we posted at the same time and I can honestly say I have never seen any barrel racer do well in any of those contraptions. I've seen the name brand bits (Carol goostree, sherry cervi, martha josey, sharon camarillo, etc) and those I'm not COMPLETELY against (In most, not all, cases) and I have seen some wonderfully trained horses run in them and do great then step right off and go ride a reining pattern bridleless.
It's just when people slap those things on and have no idea what they are doing that it creates a problem.
EDIT: I just now looked at that website. Okay ew. I wouldn't get a custom one off that site because I agree with you, those are horrible mouthpiece selections and I only see one maybe 1/16 of an acceptable cheekpiece.
Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.
