Opinions on the Argentine Dogbone bit?

What are your opinions on it? Is it harsh, mild?

Like this one?



I do not think it is all that harsh, light hands are always the key to gentleness

May all your Trails be happy and safe ones

Yea, that bit.

I have a gelding that goes easily in a hackamore or a bit. The hackamore I bought (Little S) doesnt fit and is just wonky on him. I want to try a snaffle on him which im sure hell go in but I do not want to buy one and then figure out he hates it. But I do have this argentine snaffle I can try.

The industry calls it a snaffle. The reference are now moving to shank or shankless.

I was browsing catalogs last night. Anything with a broken mouthpiece was called snaffl.

If you can ever get one like this, do it, I regret trading it off....

It was a handy bit to have, just about all my horses liked it. And I really liked how swept back the shanks were, they gave quit a bit of pre signal.
