    Or are you talking about the shanks being on the wrong end?

    It looks as though you have the bridle attached where the reins should go and the reins where the bridle should go, the curb strap should go up near the bridle and go under the horse's chin, not the end you attach the reins to, unless I just never seen a bit like that before?. I don't know.

    My first horse; I was 18 yrs old and just bought my first horse, a standardbred gelding. We lived on the outskirts of a city and a neighbour had a small field behind their house. I asked if I could fence it and keep my horse there and it was ok with them. When we brought him home all the neighbours came out to see him. I rode him around on the street for a while ( I might add that I was a beginner rider at this time) and then took him back out to his pasture. It was a sloping field and I took him in at the gate and everyone was standing at the top of the hill watching us, I felt so proud and happy I decided to gallop up the hill to show off a little. Didn't know til then he had a bucking problem. Well he set to bucking and he tossed me high in the air, I was so determined not to fall off in front of all these people. I landed in front of the saddle, behind the saddle off to one side then the other, it was blind luck that every time I came down from a buck that the horse happened to be somewhere underneath me, put on quite a show for the folks, but fortunately for me he stopped bucking and saved me the embarrassment of being tossed.

    probably, bits tend to be designed with specific things in mind, if you put it the wrong way around I doubt it will work so well, the curb strap wont be engaging at all and the dynamics of it will be all back to front. Try it the right way around and see how it goes. Or just get a short shanked bit.
