Same principle--so yup I think that is it. The one at the barn is different with just 2 smooth O rings which are the same size where I think the one in the picture has 2 different size rings and the mouthpiece is just a smooth snaffle but that is how it is built--do you know what it is and how it is used??
Thank you Kansas_Twister!

i looked it up and there are 2 meanings for this bit .....one says it's a schooling or training bit and the other one claims it to be a driving bit, i'm going to look in to it further..

well if it looks like that the ring part should be on the outside at his cheeks most likely.

That's a driving bit. They can also be ridden in, but aren't very popular. The extra rings keep the but from sliding through the horse's mouth, kinda like a full cheek snaffle.

Those big rings on the one pictured are cheek guards. They are put on so you cannot pull the bit through the animals mouth. They also make them out of rubber whitch I prefer so they wont pinch the upper lip

Do the rings go INSIDE the horse mouth or beside the cheek?
