Oh dear! I must be mistaken!

This has a broken mouthpiece. It must be a snaffle, too!

Allison Finch and DrumRunner like this.

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

What is this!? I thought I was on just about every swap page..I get enough freaking notifications from the barrel racing tack swap to drive me crazy..I'll have to find this bit swap though..*shifty eyes* You can never have enough bits..I mean, you might need one for something..

Looks ferocious.
I've never seen anything like it but seems to be a combination of a nutcracker action mouthpiece, lots of leverage and a gag action on the poll.
I don't understand the need for anything like this at all - but I'm sure someone out there loves them.

All correct but there is no gag action. Might be more acceptable if there was.
