As there is no such thing as a "gaited horse saddle" neither is there any such thing as a "gaited horse bit." The Imus product is just another variation on a theme.
IMO if you like this type of bit look at the Mylers. They are not cheap but are very well made.
Your absolutly correct. There have been some issues witht he B.I. Bit breaking in the middle during useage. I do not know if this issue has been cleared up or not, I have not enquired. This bit could just as well be used in a QH an Arab (smaller size of course).
The curvature in the mouthpeice of the bit should not impede upon the pallete at all regardless how shallow it is......at least its not supposed to be designed that way. Its beena while since I have looked at the B.I. Bit but if my memory serves me well the curvature is only about 1/2 inch forward. Mylers are well made bits with excellent balance......they have been a little out of my price range unless I got them used.
