Personally, I've always been a bit wary of curbs with broken mouth pieces, especially ones without a barrel. They just seem to like to wrap around the horses jaw...

That being said, I am not overly thrilled with the look of this bit - not to mention that the name is misleading. A grazing bit has little to no movable parts - unlike the linked bit with has three break points in the mouth piece and swivel shanks. If I was going to recommend a bit for you and your horse - I would suggest a short-shank barrel mouth piece "Myler" bit.

They can be a bit on the expensive side, but they are wonderful bits and almost every horse I've used one on loves them. :)

The bit you show, Jag, is a takeoff on a Billy Allen mouth piece. I've been using a sweetiron version of the bit for over 15 years. Most horses do well in it.

You don't have to get a Myler brand to get the same mouth. Just Google "Billy Allen bit" and you will find them in different variations for far less then Myler.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

It's not always what you say but what they hear.
