Cool Help finding a bit.... :)

I am looking for a small-ported western show bit. It has to have fancy shanks... I saw a few I like, except for the ports are way too big! My horse currently uses a futurity bit, so I am looking for a port like that. Can you siggest any sites, or have you seen any? Would it help if I posted a picture?

It would certainly help if you posted a picture, that way we could know exactly what you are looking for but I will go ahead and post some links to bits that I think would be show-worthy with lower ported mouths.

This one is quite a bit more expensive but you can choose which mouth you like the most and the cheeks are really fancy.

Sorry for so many links but I love bit shopping.

I was actually looking at the third one the other day. I really like it. Thanks for showing me some other ones though, just incase the one I like is out of stock.
