    Where could I find a bit like this , low port with swivel shanks? Is there a website or should I hit the tack stores?
    I have found a Billy Allen that I may buy ...Just trying to decide which may be the best one to try.

    Hmm, I don't really know though...would the Bitlogic bit be the same idea of the tom thumb?

    This is the type of bit I use to transition from a snaffle. Remember that they are all "curb" bits because they work off the curb chain under the horses jaw rather they have a high port or low port or snaffle mouth if it has shanks it's a curb bit. After you get him in a curb bit don't be afraid of a higher port as a next step. The higher port helps with vertical flexion and is often more comfortable for the horse.

    I just tranisitioned my mare as well for training WP. I use a Billy Allen bit and it has been wonderful for her transition.

    The ported bit you are looking to get is a really nice bit, IMHO. I ordered it from that site when I needed another bit and it works wonderfully. It is very balanced and mild for an excellent price. Good luck and I hope you are as fortunate with it as I have been.

    I have my eye on the below bit, via Ebay. Any opinions on this Billy Allen? Would it make a good transition bit from a TT? Of course it has long shanks and not too sure about that??
