What bit do you show in?
 
Well I'm thinking it's about time to buy a new show bit (I don't really like the 'look' of my current one's shanks, yeah I know haha)

So I was wondering what your guys show shanks looked like? And just so I can put it in perspective what type of mouthpiece is on it too.

I've yet to actually complete my show tack, with a show bit, but when I eventually get to getting one, I'll be getting something along these lines.

Fixed medium port cavalry bit with sweet iron. They make them with fancier silver on the outside too. It's a great training bit, but I want one that has more weight to it. It's pretty light and takes a bit of sensitizing.

That bottom one is the bit I'm looking at. Anyone else feel like sharing? I have a slight obsession with bits ;)

Here's a few that work great in the team roping horses. I imagine they'd work great if I tried something other than roping with them :P


My mare ropes and barrel races and does everything with this bit:

And my 2 all time fav's this far:

^^ I like that first bit, it reminds me of my current bit. I think I'm going to stay away from brown bits this time though- I love the look of silver bits.
