This ingenious design gives the independent lateral control of the Hinged port but breaks in the middle like a snaffle. It causes a horse to bend in the ribs while keeping the shoulder and the head in the correct position. Perfect for younger or light-mouthed horses and is a good transition from a snaffle.
Absolutely love this bit! You can't buy a better bit for the money. I have Tom Balding spurs and several bits that were made for me years ago at a much higher price...they have either my name or initials on them. This bit is such a steal for a baseline bit. His bits are balanced and the workmanship is flawless, you can't go wrong!
