Junior Cow Horse Bit Information

Hi, I am new to these forums and am looking forward to learning.

My daughter recently started taking lessons for barrel racing and pole bending. She has done these events in the past, but she recently started taking actual lessons. The woman she takes lessons from wants us to change bits to a Junior Cow Horse bit. I will say our horse goes very well in this bit. The problem is I can't find this exact bit/mouthpiece anywhere, and she bought this bit when she was traveling out West. She is out of town for the week, and I wanted to order one before our next lesson.

Can anyone tell me what this mouthpiece description would be? I have searched slow twisted junior cow horse bit, diamond twist cow horse bit, large twist/spiral cow horse bit, and some others. I can only find actual twisted wire mouthpieces, when I use these search terms.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

That one looks to be a little more "unique" of a Jr. Cowhorse bit. I've never seen the "twisting" quite like that.

I would think that a bit like this would be close enough that your horse won't know the difference.

My own personal preference --> I HATE twisted mouthpieces. I personally feel they are unnecessary. I also run my horse in a Jr. Cowhorse, but my mouthpiece is smooth with a dogbone roller.

Thank you for responding. I have asked a few people, and they think this is a unique mouthpiece also. We have never used a twisted mouthpiece on any of our horses, so I was a little apprehensive when the trainer tried one on this horse. But, the mare does very well in it, and my daughter has very light hands.

I have looked at the smooth mouthpiece with dogbone roller and am considering it, if I can't find one similar to the picture I have.

Thanks again for responding.
