Oh goodness! This bit makes my mouth hurt

Barrel Gag Bit Bike Chain Mouth

I can't imagine using it on my horse.

I can't find a 5 1/4" happy mouth that I want and yet they sell these things? Makes me sick. I can't believe anyone would think it would be remotely ok to use anything like this on a horse.

If you can't stop or turn your horse - slap a high port kimberwicke on it, fatten it up and turn it into a cow horse! At least in the humblest opinion of my "trainer" :roll:

In all seriousness - people that make bits like that, ought to have to wear it for a month and see how they like it.

Those are also known as "mule bits" if I'm not mistaken. Lmao they make me sick. I'd imagine the poor animal would be bleeding from the mouth after a ride in one of those... :{
