split rubber bit?

Apparently my gelding chewed to hard on his rubber bit, and split the rubber down one side!
Any way to fix this besides pulling the rubber off the whole thing? Or is it destined for the trash heap?

That's the downside of rubber bits, once they have any gouges or rough spots, they're destined for the trash. Sorry!

bummer, cause he really liked that one. i put his old bridle on after he split the rubber bit and he promptly told me what he thought about going back to a plain snaffle.
off to the tack store!
