scroll down a while, you'll see it. You have to pass through their nasty collection of rusty bits to see it.

Bits are only as inhumane as you make them out to be. You can make a tomthumb inhumane. Its all in the eye of the beholder.

A chainsaw bit? How can that be humane. The slightest movement of the rein will cut the horses bars!

first off, why would anyone want to buy a rusty old bit? and the chainsaw bit :shock: Never seen anything like that in my life!

I once read it in an article posted by a user on here while ago, but I forgot where, it had to do with rollkurand such and there was an article on there about bits.

I wouldn't buy a rusty old bit and surely not a chainsaw bit. Ugh.

Which one is the chainsaw bit?

I've seen a 'chainsaw' bit. They were typically used for driving mules and such. Icompetely disagree with it. When there are spikes driving into your horse's mouth, thats wrong! Can you imagine what it would feel like with someone who has rough hands?! :-(

That's crazy! I thought only people in 3rd world countries who had no clue how they were supposed to look after animals used those things!

I agree that any bit CAN be inhuman if used incorrectly, but that's just unecessary. I can see it being painful even in the gentlest of hands. There is no excuse for that.

I wouldn't put that on my chain saw much less in a horses mouth :shock: Amazing some of the crap that gets marketed for horses. That chain snaffle didn't look to humane either.
