This bit confuses me..

I was just browsing through the Alberta Horse Tack For Sale group on Facebook and seen this bit .. I'm just curious as to what it is and what it's purpose is. It's listed as a brand new marked L5* made by Ricardo grijalva super nice bit and they're selling it for $1200.00

Anyone? Haha

It's a Spade bit, the tongue depressor is called a spoon. This bit is used on finished horses only, which means about 5 years of intensive training.

It's a traditional Spanish spade bit. I ride with them on my finished horses. It is the final step of the California Vaquero bridle horse process which consists of a bosal hackamore, two-rein (using the hackamore and Mona Lisa, half breed or salinas bit together) to finishing with a spade. It is purely a signal bit, used with rein chains. The horse works off movements in the rein and vibrations from the riders hands. Horse rides so light it's unbelievable. There is more information on this whole process in a thread in the Horse Training forum, called Old School Horse Training Approach if your super curious.
