Walking Horse Bit

Where can I find a good walking horse bit? I used to have one for my old guy but I'm not sure what I've done with it....

Hmm... Jeffers sells em, and they tend to be really well priced, and their stuff holds up pretty well. Plus, since they are located in Alabama, I usually get my stuff next day =)

Heres what they have (and yes, they took a picture of the second bit up-side-down.. L O L!)

Jeffers Stainless Steel Walking Horse Bit - 5" snaffle mouth, 8" cheek. $23.95:

Jeffers Walking Horse Bit - Stainless steel, 5-1/8" mullen mouth with 8-1/2" cheeks. $19.95:

Just go to http://www.jeffersequine.com and search "Walking Horse Bit" and you should find these ^^

I'm assuming that's what you're talking about when ya mean Walking Horse Bit ^^ I've been learning much about outfitting Walkers lately because of my little fella =)

There is another website, I just forget the name, that sells the cavessons and headstalls along with bits... *scratches head* I just can't remember what they're called!

Hope this helps! ^^

Thanks... now I have to ask the "stupid" question...

What am I looking for? My old walker used one w/ a long shank and a port. When it got icky I couldnt find a bit like it to replace it so I just bought a trail bit which is what I'm using on Sierra now but I was reading that hey need a longer shank (I think) to allow them proper head carriage... which in all honosty, she's a trail horse so... but then it said if they don't have proper head carriage they will have a choppy gait so... I love walkers but I don't know alot about them...

Same here, LOL! I thought you knew what kind of bit you wanted, but didn't know where to go for it ^^

I am rather clueless when it comes to Walking Horses as well... even though I own one ^^

Sorry to not be very helpful! Lol!

The shank length depends on the horse. If its just a trail horse then you wouldn't need a long shank. They just give you more leverage. If you live in TN there are some good shops....Bedford Tack, World Champion Horse Supplies, there's another but I can't remember the name!! Ugh. I'll think of it eventually
