    A curb is any bit where the ratio is greater than 1:1. The shanks multiply any pressure on them by however long the shank is. So, on a bit with a five inch shank, when you pull with a pound of pressure, the horse feels 5 pounds of pressure, pull with 2 pounds, horse feels 10 pounds of pressure, etc.
    It's a very common misconception, don't worry!
    It's mostly due to the fact that TT's are sold as "Tom Thumb 'Snaffles'" because of the mouthpiece (which a lot of people call a "snaffle mouth"). They really should be called "Tom Thumb Curbs" though!
    Hopefully that all makes sense. :)

    Anyway, sorry for taking over your thread with bit talk!
    Aaahhhh thank you! You didn't take over my thread! Lol. Bits are too confusing :p
