Elevator Bit-9 3/4" long cheeks with a leverage ration of 1 to 1 (1:1). This bit has no leverage, only action. Smooth snaffle 5 1/8" 11mm mouthpiece with copper inlay. The setting of this bit gives you maximum results with minimum rider effort. Lower setting (1/2" down from corners) will drop the head and neck. High setting (2 or 3 wrinkles) will lift neck and cause flexion at the poll. Always adjust curb fairly loose for best results. Perfect for neck, shoulder, and collection control development and maintenance.

After trying a Vogt at my trainers, I bought a different brand thinking I'd get the same result and that didn't happen. Sometimes it pays to just spend a little extra to get quality. This bit reminds my sometimes high headed cow horse to bend at the poll and lift her shoulders, which makes her job a lot easier.

I like this bit for the purpose of making my horses drop their heads. I use it intermittently for that purpose.

Gear for horses that want to lean on your hands. You will need a small headstall to go with it because of the shanks. It was hard to find one that would work.
