Is it this?

Its a wilson bit- mainly for driving but people at my yard have used it on horses that need more control or are very wooded in the mouth.

We all called it a four ring snaffle, there are many different varietys with rollers etc.

Sorry the inside ring is used to attach the cheek pieces too, and the outside ring for the reins, you can do it the other way around if the horse is very strong as it has a squeezing effect on the cheeks as a stronger contact is taken up.

Thanks hsharp123. That is the bit exactly. I have been to the barn a few times and keep forgetting my camera. I can now let my barn manager know and my farrier (she didn't know either!). Thanks again
