Oh my, what a big MOUTH you have!

So the QH gelding that I recently purchased needs a 6" bit... He came with a curb bit with a copper roller and shanks that are quite long. The problem is that he does not know how to neck rein yet and I feel that this bit is too harsh for him--he most definitely doesnt like it. WHERE can I find 6" snaffles online that are available to Canada? I know that this is concidered a draft size, but he really needs it.

Try www.drafttack.com. I don't know if they ship to Canada but I would assume that they do.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

what the.... I didn't even know horses came that large... I second that any place that sells draft stuff would have what you are looking for. Though.... often times that stuff is of low quality. You COULD try jeffers.... maybe state line....


Though I would give Dover Saddlery a look as well...

Doesn't Greenhawk carry a draft line? You may have to order it special (if you're near a greenhawk) or online. Don't quote me on that though. It is worth checking out, however.

6" bits aren't so rare. I've been seeing several of them while bit shopping myself. I have no idea whether they ship to Canada however.
