I have that same bit, GH. Works great (imo) and ST liked it better than the 3 piece reiner with short shanks and a roller. If it has shanks at all, you should be fine showing in it.

That dogbone is an excellent transition bit, I had the exact same one but for total neck reining with one hand, I found it lacked clear lateral signals with direct rein help. You might have better luck with it than me however, I found swivel mouth and cheek piece bits with long shanks gave more clear lateral movement with minimal hand movement. The Robarts bit I mentioned earlier, replaced my need for the dogbone since I found it's even better for transitioning from direct reining to neck reining but it still moveable enough to be excellent to tune up two handed. I can't say enough good things about that bit, everyone who has bought it on my show circuit will turn up at a show with a different fancier curb during the season but I noticed at the provincials or a bigger qualifying show, their horses are back in the Robarts. I have more curbs than most local tack shops, since using the Robarts, I don't bother buying or even looking at western bits now, right there that bit saved me money!

Mmmm I like the look of the little dogbone, because of the shorter shank, I'm certainly going to have to stick with the snaffle for a little while, she is so hot and reactive I would rather sort out our partnership and communications with a snaffle to start with, we can transition up when we are more settled together.

I am so grateful though to who ever put the stop on her, she stops off of my seat like a champion, I'm so interested to see what happens when we get out of the walk.

OOPs. I seem to have bought a Robart Pinchless, on sale at $47, BNWT, lowballed at $35 and they accepted my offer, didn't think that would happen!
