Explain this bit

I have some general knowledge about how a couple different basic bits work, but I was curious about this one.





And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

Those are for leading stallions in hand. They are "anti-rearing" bits.

Interesting! It was being sold as a "One rein bit" or a "One hand bit" for riding O_O

That is not a anti-rearing bit....that is a one hand riding bit.

It used to be popular with the roping crowd along time ago.

Conformation is how far the horse CAN go,
Mind is how far the horse WILL go,
Training is how far it DOES go.

I'm assuming it rides just like a bosal except a bit instead of a noseband?

The rotating mouthpiece is interesting. Are those areas that look like springs actually sprung or just decoration?

You are so right. The anti-rearing bits have a different mouthpiece.

That's what I have known them as. Can't say that I have ever used one though.

Chifney bit is what you all are referring to as "anti-rearing" bit. And that is not what they are used for per se.

Used to gain more control over horse when leading, primarily used with TB's, young stock when leading.
