    What type of bit is this?


    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?

    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.

    It help with a horse that is hard to steer, the loop goes under the jaw.

    Nice that it is unjointed, some horses here in NZ wear a horrible version. - Have to be really careful its not put in the mouth the wrong way up.
