My eyes must bug out a little when I read through some of our catalogues at work (I work at a tack shop). Both english and western, some of the things they come up with is insane.

Try an offset double twised copper wire (why the copper I don't know) short shank gag.
What about a chain mouth long shanked gag with chain curb action and rawhide nosepiece?

You thought I was kidding?

Bike chain gag, anyone? And yes ma'am you can slide that sucker almost to the horse's ears if you wanted to.

...makes me feel almost silly for cringing at the single twisted wire we do bring in and hide at the back of all the bits (sometimes we get an irate cowboy demanding such a thing)

Hey now, not all of us barrel racers are idiots!

But seriously...a bike chain mouth piece?!

Spastic, I hope that you don't think I was poking fun at barrel racers - totally not my point.
Some of the barrel racers I know use very severe bits and use the excuse "you need extra control when going those speeds."
I do not buy it.
Spastic, from what I have seen you are a very competent rider/trainer with nothing but your horses' health and well-being in mind.

Like JustDressageIt said, Spastic, you can slid it almost to the horses ears if you wanted to.

Don't forget to check out the oh-so fine selection of:

Correction bits! Always wanted your horses jaw to drop open all the way to it's chest? Look no further. He'll be in so much pain he'll completely forget about bucking you off.

We also sell 'Latex Bandages' for when that double twisted five ring shank bit with the wire thin metal noseband either crushes your horses nasal passages or cuts off his tongue. Whoo!

I'll find the pictures of the metal noseband in a little while. It's 'lock this person up for life' cruel.

Correction bits are one thing.... I use a slightly ported Myler, and instead of rotating up to the roof of the mouth, it creates tongue relief... so not all ports are created equal :)
