Low Port Tenn Walker Bit

So there are a good bit of TWH's at the barn, which to me is just a plus so I can experience their gait, and just a different breed of horse.

My friend tried a Low Port Tenn Walker bit on her mare the other day, and she is looking to buy one but can't seem to find a reliable place online to buy from. I looked a little bit yesterday and came up with the same findings.

Any suggestions? Thanks

Just remember if you get one of the interchangeable to also get the round discs so they don't pinch your horses mouth. We use the low port with the 6 inch shank.

A woman can NEVER have too many horses.....

Quite a few of the non interchangeable ones pinch too so be prepared to install those discs.

I use a 9 dollar mild curb bit in my walkers. Never felt the need to ride with a boat anchor in a horses mouth.

Completely agree. Then again, its not my horse, so who knows. As far as horse sense, and horse knowledge, she knows the minimum. Told her about a one rein stop, and she didnt understand it at all so.
