Your example was closer than mine but yes it is a Western bit for sure.

Spastic Dove- The bit you showed was a mullen mouth pelham. (also known as a "tom thumb" pelham because of the short shanks) The bit the original person posted was not.
For those of you who thought the western bit had two rings for two reins. No it does not. The top ring is for the cheek pieces (the leather straps on your bridle that connect the bridle to the bit). The lower ring is for the reins.
A pelham has a ring for the cheek pieces and two rings (a snaffle and a curb ring) for two sets of reins.

Hope this cleared up some confusion. ~E

Yeah, I was saying the bit I posted was a mullen mouth pelham, not hers since she said that one was similar to the bit she posted but with rings. I don't know what hers was, I wasn't really trying to figure out, just go fro her description.

OP, you're probably looking for a mullen mouth bit with O-rings or D-rings.

I don't know why, but they are called 'mullen mouth snaffles'. Lol.

Yes yes yes! This is it! But it has a copper bit piece! Thanks for the help!
