Pee Wee Bit

Does anyone have one and how do you find it? The bit itself sounds perfect, yet don't appear to be particularly common.

I'm surprised at their lack of popularity especially as the bit is marketed as a bit for every occasion but I guess no one on here has ever used one.

I've never heard of one of these bits before, but I did some googling and I've copy/pasted a couple of Q&A's

'Lack of basic riding skills. The rider is too heavy handed and is unaware of correct pressure and release
You only need to ride with light hands when using a Pee Wee '
Q. Why should I buy a Macs Equine Pee Wee bit ?

A. Because, not only does the Pee wee bit give amazing control requiring only light hands, it is extremely comfortable for your horse


Those are just two things I found, but it seems that it ISN'T a 'bit for all occasions' but more of a 'bit for those who can ride with consistently light contact'

I don't think it would be suitable for everyone, my horse would hate it since he likes to play with his snaffle, the rigidity (sp?) would drive him nuts!

As for where to buy one, once again google came in handy and I found this: New Horse Bits - The Ultimate Bit for Controlling Horses The order box is on the right hand side, and it looks like it ships internationally as well.

I'd love to hear what some other people more knowledgable than me think of it?

I used one for a period of a couple of months. My horse rode fine in it, I I didn't notice any particular change when in the saddle. I did notice that he started clamping him teeth together when I went to put the bit in him mouth, something he'd never done.
Later I was told by an instructor at Pony Club that it wasn't a very nice bit, for reasons I don't remember (sorry!) and I switched to a oval-link snaffle which he likes much better. No more teeth-clamping.

Interesting how your horse reacted like that its supposed to help them settle and relax, but I suppose if they don't like something..........

Maybes its too much of a contraption for a lot of horses.
