    Where to find this bit?

    My aunt and uncle are sending us a their best Arabian mare, a finished reiner, and a 4 y/o greenie, from Colorado. They're boarding the truck tomorrow morning, will travel in box stalls, and arrive here Friday morning. Needless to say, I'm psyched! This mare is absolutely fantastic to ride.

    Anyway, my uncle sent me a few pictures of the bit she works in now, which is a low port correction bit. He said she can also go in a grazing bit. My dad's going to Schneider's while I'm at school tomorrow to try and find a comparable bit.

    I attached pictures of the correction bit, can anyone help me find something comparable online? Thanks!

    This is the closest I've found to it so far, but it doesn't say the port height in the description and it looks to be much bigger.

    This one looks to have the smaller port, but longer shanks.

    A higher port here, but the shanks aren't too long:

    Look at correction bits. You should find that exact one

    I have been, and believe it or not I can't find anything close to it. Do you have any links to places that might have it?

    ETA: This one looks promising, what do you think?

    I have a couple of corrections for sale in the classified section here with pics....they might have a taller port though.

    Cowchick, thanks. Will take a look.

    I think I might have found it!

    Shanks are totally different. The closest, IMO, is the first one in equiniphile's post. You have to look at so many factors, but if the horse goes well in it, I would try and keep it as close as possible. However, there certainly are lots of more knowledgeable folks than I on here.

    I got my correction bit (For western and english, kimberwicke correction) from Valley Tack (Valley City, Ohio, you've heard of them I'm sure)

    Not the EXACT same bit, but very similar.

    I've seen that bit at Schneider's. Your dad shouldn't have any trouble finding the right thing there. They specialize in stuff for Arabians.

    Okay, dumb question. What is the purpose of this bit?
