Santa Barbara Bit with a 5” frog mouthpiece and 8" long cheeks.
This is a beautiful Santa Barbara style bit for that nice horse that deserves to be bridled properly. The real beauty of this cheek is that the extra weight in the back helps the bit to stay in a neutral position on a loose rein and gives the horse a quick release when you give him slack. The frog mouthpiece also works off a little different pressure points than most bits which will almost let you start with a “fresh mouth” on many horses. It’s a classic cow horse favorite for all the right reasons and I think you’d get what you’re looking for with it.
This bit is National Reined Cow Horse Association (NRCHA) show legal.
Leverage Position #1 bits are designed for short-necked horses with a low neck set that need some lift at the poll to flex properly and re-distribute weight to the hindquarters. They are also a favorite for breeds like the Morgan, that have a naturally higher head carriage and need to break at the poll to maintain it. Mouth power #2 bits are considered a medium power mouthpiece for horses with an average mouth.
Cheeks feature beautiful hand-engraved German silver overlay on a stainless steel base, and mouthpiece is made from sweet iron with a copper cricket and roller bars.
