    What makes a tom thumb(western only here) a tom thumb is the short straight shanks and the single joint. When used to ride a well trained (neckrein broke) western horse it works fine and dandy. I don't care for them either personally but some horses go great in them.

    The bit under discussion is NOT a Western TT bit.. Argue all you want but it's not. It has a 3 piece mouth, thus making it milder than a single jointed mouth.

    This is a western TT.


    This is an english TT


    I totally do not understand or agree with marketing bits with names that do not fit them. Snaffle bits are marketed with shanks, yet they are not a snaffle bit. No wonder people are so confused. *sorry, that is my rant on companies who should know better. Myler being one, Reinsman being another.

    Have a good day all. :)
