    Explain this bit

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

    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.

    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.
