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.

Hi guys I have been looking for a bit for some time and I can't seem to find it and I don't know its name... can anyone help me? The bit seems to be some sort of elevator that has two rings within the big ring...

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.

I found this post super informative, thank you!
