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.
