Help with the correct way of this BIT please..............

I am trying to understand the difference between this bit and how it is hooked up to the bridle. Rather it is one way or the other, it appears theres not much difference, if any at all. I know the circle faces the horse neck, but the difference is with the bit flipped straight over, or just flipped from hooked up one way to the other, is there a difference in how the bit works. Both ways the circles would be facing the back.

Just want to make sure I have it hooked up correct.

Just make sure the concave part is facing you when you attach it to the bridle. Looks like you might have to flip that over, but otherwise looks right.

If you hold the cheek pieces with both hands like you were holding reins, one side of the cross piece corners will look like the inside and outside if you flip it over. That doesn't apply to all bits, but just take a look at it both ways just in case.

There's an inside and an outside. That's all I can say. I'll try to find a pic that shows it better and repost.

Okay, this one shows a good case of inside and outside. Hope that helps.

Okay, this is my last attempt. That pic is showing the outside of that bit. The part facing you should be facing out of the horse's mouth. If you were attaching a bridle to it, you would flip it over to the inside and attach it.

I'll try and explain it the bit (middle part) has a curve to it. The inside of the curve should face you.Or using the bit that you pictured the side that the bit is laying on should face you and the side facing up faces away from you.
