What the heck type of bit is this???

I got this bit when I inherited my Paso's and am in dire need of a new one BUT I have no idea what type of bit it is. Please help by checking out the attached photo. There's also a curb chain that's not attached in the picture.

More info

Yes, those are copper rollers too.

Try googling Peruvian native tack or something similar. It looks like it could be breed specific.

Wow, never seen that before, must be south american or something.

That looks like some kind of spade bit. The copper rollers on the bars are unique. Just be sure to use very light hands.

Ya mean like this?

Google casa dosa tack - it is a Jointed Spoon Bit

The spoon is the part that touches the top of your horse's mount and the longer the shaft leading to the spoon, the more severe. The OP's doesn't seem to have a broken mouth piece (joined mouth).

you're right!

Lemme see what else I can find:

google paso fino elegante

ETA: interestingly, this type of bit is marketed as the "first bit a horse should have" - - they claim it is very mild...
