Is there ever a good reason for this bit?

Is there ever a good reason to put a horse in a twisted wire/shanked sidepull combination? I can see no good reason for it, but I know others disagree.

You mean a combination bit?

Yes it's a combination with the twisted wire snaffle attatched to the shanks of the sidepull

Like the one below? Just so you know, a sidepull works off of direct pressure so they don't have shanks. They are called combination bits because they are a mix of a hackamore and a bit.

Yes exactly like that

There used alot by barrel racers I don't personally use it on my horse because he doesn't need that much of a bit but some horses run awesome with them.

It is a high voltage bit... I prefer to train my horses to go in something a lot lighter but some people can use it to be very gentle to the horse. It all depends on the hands of the rider.

I've used them. They are not as harsh as they may look, especially with light hands. They work of mainly nose pressure, the bit is a gag it slides and won't engage right away.
