Help! What bit is this?

I have been hunting high and low to figure out what bit this is. Was used in a clinic and the horse was SO SOFT in head head and neck with it - she used to over collect and drop too low but was absolutely perfect in it with no aid.

I've been told Dutton's but I can't find this bit on their website or with anyone who carries it. I was also told just your basic colt breaking shank but I can't find any with the swept back shanks this has.

In western terms, a "long shanked snaffle".

Google might help you out. Ricky Green sold a close variation of the bit you have pictured.

ETA:I am aware this is a single jointed mouthpiece curb and not a true snaffle.

If you search up "jointed grazing bit" you should find some similar results!

I dont think its a Dutton that teardrop bottom ring for the reins you usually see on a Proffesionals Choise/ Classic Equine / or a Cowpuncher bit (maker) . ..... Any #'s on it ?

It looks like a proreiner to me, but Iím not sure. It is similar in style. Does it have the lines of copper on the underside of the mouth?
