There are two great threads in the "Horse Tack & Equipment" section of this forum.

If you go to the home page and down through the list you will find it. There are so many kinds, it is understandably confusing at first.

Have fun learning. Most of us realize we will always be learning something new about bits.

Here is a page with some names of different kinds of bits, I had to crop it a bit to fit with the size limits, but most of the information is here I scanned it from my copy of a book called Horse Sense, here is the link to it

Horse Sense by Jane Myers (9780643065987) | Buy online at Angus & Robertson

Keep in mind these are mostly Australian names for these bits, they can be called other names in different countries, and there is only a few kinds of bit here, there is probably a couple hundred more kinds, but it's a start

I think if you click the image it will go bigger, but I'm not sure

EDIT: okay apparently not, so here is a link to the full-sized page, sorry about that Horse Bits - Imgur
