It's some kind of driving bit, I believe.

I believe its a very rusty (or made of something I don't know of) half-cheek mullen mouth snaffle. It is used for driving a lot for sure, but you can also ride in it. I use one on my miniature horse mare, but it's made of stainless steel with german silver inlays.

Question What is this bit called?

So, my dad got some bits at an auction this last weekend, he bought them for decorations, and this was one of them..


Honestly, I have no idea what this is. If anyone knows anything about it, that would be awesome!

Similar half spoon-cheek bits were used on trotters and pacers a lot in the UK. I've never seen a mouthpiece like this but I suspect the discs either side of the 'port' were intended to keep it central over the tongue.

Unless anyone knows different?

We race Standardbreds and yes it looks very similar to the bits we use but I too have never seen the discs.
