I'm not as well-versed in western bits, I'm a snaffle gal, so I have to do a bit of research into the types from a few different sources so I'm not passing along bad information, but I will hopefully sit down and write a western bit article in the near(ish) future.

Another good source of information on English bits comes from www.thesaddleryshop.co.uk. It has descriptions along with a good selection of English bits.

Thanks Santa!!! That's exactly the one! Thanks to all of you for trying! Hahaha, I have been searching for the name of the bit for months! My horse really has a low head problem but normal gags have too much pull for him and he really hates elevator bits... So really thank you guys a thousand times!

The corkscrew bit =

Also, yikes, that last one looks like an instrument of torture I think if I saw someone using that one a horse (or anything that's, you know, alive) I'd be tempted to whip that person with a crop.
