they are some really nice bit's....

When your heart is full you will have know more room, but to any horse lovers you heart is never full until you have a horse you can trust and love in your life.

3 inches? That's pretty small. Is it even possible?

I ride Jesse in a 6" Double jointed loose ring snaffle with a peanut.
Miss Kitty has the same thing but 5".

I used to ride my last horse, Hermes, in a plain English Hackamore.

My first horse had a bit that was nearly impossible to find. It was a double jointed eggbut snaffle with a copper peanut.

That is really cute Poseidon!

Horses are scared of two things... Things that move and things that don't.

I have a question. Why does the baucher bit have extra things at the top?

Arksly: The larger ring attaches to the reins and the smaller ring attaches to the cheeckpiece of your bridle. It is (i think) the only snaffle that is dressage-legal that has any sort of leverage. When you squeeze the rein the horse feels pressure at it's poll.
