Sherry Cervi Bit

I was just wondering if anyone uses this bit and what you think of it :)

Yes and I LOVED it (borrowed from friend). I have the regular twist with out the Dogbone in the middle. But I have used it and love the way it feels on my really just depends on the horse though. Some horses like it better then others, and some horses work and some hate it.

Just so you know I didn't look at the link (Laptop is being difficult) but I know what bit you are talking about.

I think the diamond lifter bits are excellent bits after your horse is solid and ready to be running. I would only use one with the dogbone though, but I'm really touchy about single joints and twists with leverage. It's personal preference, I don't critisize peple who do use the single joint.

I haven't found a horse yet of mine that hates the dogbone Sherry Cervi so yeah, I really like it. Even my really soft mouthed, sensitive horses love it.

Thanks for the replies! I would really like to try this bit but I'm not sure if my horse will like it. It would be helpful if I borrowed one first but I guess I could always just sell it if I do decide to buy it.

I agree about the single jointed mouthpieces. I just don't like them and my horse doesn't care for them much either. Right now I have him in a solid mouthpiece but I really don't like it for running. I want to get a bit that gives me more leverage and I would like to be able to move the shanks independently which I cannot do with the bit I am using now. I think I will have to try this bit! :)

Is this bit similar to the junior cowhorse bits? I've heard good things about those bits also.

I also don't like the twisted mouthpieces. How does everyone feel about those? Can I get a smooth mouthpiece with this bit? I don't know where to look. Any websites?

Sorry for all the questions :P

Ehh I think junior cowhorse bits are a little bit less severe than the Sherry Cervi and as far as I know, I don't think there is any smooth mouthpieces in these kind of bits.

I would choose the Jr. Cowhorse bit over this bit. There is no smooth mouthpiece in the Crown C bits.... Just twists, and three piece twists. I do like twists on SOME horses, but I prefer smooth.

I would check on Amazon for cheaper prices, but I generally buy from

What about this junior cow horse bit?

That is a very nice bit. It's got a gentle action to it, a three piece with the roller will be very soft on the horse's mouth.

That's what I was thinking. And I think that my horse would like the roller too since he is always playing with his bit anyway haha :)
