It is a snaffle with short shanks.... I had him in a ring snaffle, then decided to try this snaffle and I think we both like it... It does have curb chain on it but still a snaffle..... not really using the bit right now... but when I start driving him up and etc it will give me more leverage... he is so soft it really doesn't matter.

If it has shanks it is not a snaffle.

I have to disagree. There are lots of western snaffle's that are shanks. Here is a picture of one. It also could have been custom made.

That is a curb bit with a broke mouth. It is not a snaffle.

Oh ok, my bad. It looks like an english snaffle but with shanks on it, so I assumed it was right. I guess there is major differences with the two, sorry. I don't use a bit on Gizmo, so I guess I am not that informed about them.

It has the same mouth piece of a snaffle but it works off leverage which is what makes it a curb bit. Any bit with a shank is a curb bit.

I call it a short shank snaffle but by definition it is considered a curb bit.. this site also calls it a "short shank Snaffle"... has picture of it also..

Avila's Pro Shop: Short Shank Snaffle

I may jump back and forth between the short shank snaffle and ring snaffle... but right now the short shank snaffle seems to work really well.
