Explain this bit
I have some general knowledge about how a couple different basic bits work, but I was curious about this one.
Those are for leading stallions in hand. They are "anti-rearing" bits.
Interesting! It was being sold as a "One rein bit" or a "One hand bit" for riding O_O
That is not a anti-rearing bit....that is a one hand riding bit.
It used to be popular with the roping crowd along time ago.
I'm assuming it rides just like a bosal except a bit instead of a noseband?

The rotating mouthpiece is interesting. Are those areas that look like springs actually sprung or just decoration?
You are so right. The anti-rearing bits have a different mouthpiece.
Chifney bit is what you all are referring to as "anti-rearing" bit. And that is not what they are used for per se.
Used to gain more control over horse when leading, primarily used with TB's, young stock when leading.
