Is that a Billy Allen type barrel? Does it allow seperate movement of each half of the mouthpiece? Is it just rotational movement (like twist) or is there actual bend (like a snaffle but limited by the barrel) Know what I mean?

Does look like a neat bit. I might have to get one.

This is what you need, Tiny:



Breaks in every direction.

Is that a walking horse bit? Am not sure I WANT one that breaks in every direction. I rode Mac in the TOM Thumb a few times (he grew up in that bit) but I don't like it. I know you had a full tutorial on those and the Argentine Snaffle and all, and I am reopenning my mind to jointed shanked bits, but I have heard of some where there is a kind of rotation of the bit but no breaking at the barrel area .
Darn, what was that? Cant' remember. I think it was a gaited horse type.

Anyway, are you pulling my leg about that bit, Bubba? I am really naive and you could do that and I'd hardly know it, if you were funnin' me or not.

Naw, it's a Myler. Great bit. I could do without all the shank length, but that's my only complaint. It stays off the tongue, and you can move the mouthpiece any way you want without very much rein motion on your part. Pinching is virtually impossible. It really encourages a soft mouth. Ol' Gray loves it, anyway.

Oh, and I think you're thinking of the Imus Comfort bits. I have not heard very good things about them. I'd like to try the snaffle:



But do not like the look of the curb:

I like that bit as well. My trainer uses it on one of her younger horses, and I really considered buying it, because I just really liked the action and feel of it. Shorter shanks are the way to go, if your concerned about your hands.

If you are asking about this bit, No the center does not fold/bend.. It swivels everywhere and has short shanks. Can't tell you for sure if that's considered a BA mouth, but the bars of the bit do swivel within the center. As I said, it swivels everywhere.. I love it and it's not overly expensive.

Every one of my horses loves the Myler curb that was posted earlier on this page.

Even my super picky thoroughbred prefers it
