What is a dog bone bit?

A few years ago my friend said she barrel races her horse in a "dog bone bit". Since then, I've been looking in my tack magazines but never can find out what she ment. Anyone know? Can you post pictures? Thanks

If you don't love dressage you've never done it right.

I googled it. I got stuff like this (I'm guessing its because the joint in the middle is shaped like a bone..):

Dog bone bits are any 3 piece bit with that dog bone shape in the middle you see in Eliz's picture she posted.... There are western shank bits with it as well as english style bits.....

Yeah, the dogbones I have seen are mostly snaffles, like loose ring or eggbut d's. Very much like a french link, in fact, in the case of a snaffle dogbone, I think it IS a french link bit.
