Exclamation What is this western bit called???

I have what I assume is a western bit b/c of all the silver, but I don't know what it's called. LOL I bought it b/c it was pretty.

If you know what it is, let me know! I'll try to remember to check back here, but feel free to PM or email me too (jedimarajade2@yahoo.com)

Slow twist D-ring snaffle, maybe?

I have never seen anything like that. I suppose the rein attachese to the lower ring, and then the two slots are two posiitons for a curb chain?

I wonder if it's some sort of gag, with the two big holes?

Transition Bit

I would agree with the previously mentioned opinion that the bars represent a slow twist snaffle, but it is not a true D-ring. The rings on the top and bottom of the D's give it a very short shank and purchase to begin introducing curb preassure to a colt. It is a "transition" bit, for transitioning a colt from a O-ring or D-ring snaffle to a bit that uses curb preassure. I hope this helps, it is going to be nearly immpossible to identfy the maker or brand name unless someone out there has one of thier own and knows it.
