    Don't you guys know that some horses just need a harsh bit? That's just how it is!

    That bit is a torture device through and through. Sickening.

    I actually wonder WHO comes up with the ideas like that?

    To eventerdrew, 5 1/4 is really hard to find. My horse is that size and it seems to be very non-standard (all are 5 & 5 1/2). :( I ended up getting really expensive one (Mikmar lorenzo).

    Makes me sick! Like, I honestly can't even think of a situation where you would need to use something like that on a horse??? If anyone can, KUDOS!

    My husband is a silversmith, and he also makes bits and spurs. You would not believe what people ask him to make!! It's disgusting! He always turns them down though, thank goodness. One guy wanted a tom thumb with the mouthpiece made out of SCREWS! Uck!
    He also has people ask him to make "cheater bits" for shows - they look like snaffles but they have a high port like a correction bit. I guess they figure the judge won't ask them to drop their bridles? DUH!

    You might try an adjustable bit like these: Adjustable Horse Bits, Eggbutt Bit, Dee Bit, Kimberwick Bit
