    What type of bit is this?

    Hello,

    Can anyone tell me what type of bit is shown in the attachment? I believe it's a mullen mouth of some type. It was left in our barn by previous owners. I'm curious about what it is and how it is used?

    Thanks,

    Sonya

    It's a Houghton bit and it's usually used on racehorses. I'm not sure what type of horse it would be used to to help their performance though.
