Hmm. No, I don't think you can really remove rust.

Yeh I don't know if you can remove it....... Rust is a benift, it makes it sweet for the horse, but buy a new bit for comps

That depends on the bit. If you have a sweet iron bit (lots of western bits are sweet iron) then yes, you want it to rust and the horses love it!

But if you have a "regular" bit like the english ones usualy are, then don't use it if it has rust on it! The plaiting (sp) flakes off and the edges become REALLY sharp and can hurt your horses mouth/tounge.
