The Black Training Bit features a three-piece mouth that puts pressure on the horse's tongue and bars. Copper center promotes relaxation and encourages salivation. Swiveling cheeks allow the horse to feel an opening rein, making the transition from the snaffle to a shanked bit easier for the horse to understand. Antique finish. 5" snaffle mouthpiece, 6" cheeks.
I use this bit on my barrel/pole horse and it works so well. I have friends that try to steal it from me just so they can use it, its worth every penny.

I first got this bit to use on horses had some small issues. It great because its not to harsh that the horses are fighting it but you have better control then a snaffle. I know use it on all of my horses at home.

This is a great little bit for the money. I went from a egg ring snaffle to this bit, my horse loves it, she bends much nicer at the poll with this bit.

I first bought this bit for the price (can never have too many bits to try out). After I started useing it, it is the first bit I go to when I test a new horse. I have 4 colts in training and I have purchased 6 of these bits. The price is right and quality is exelente.

I've used this as a transition bit between snaffle and curb. Some horses like it a lot, some don't. Those that do,respond well to direct or indirect rein. I started using it for barrels this year, as I was running in a snaffle and at a Barrel racing clinic, she rec. that I try a dogbone. Just happened to have this along, and my horse did great with it. Awesome bit for someone with light hands and a light mouthed horse.

I use this bit for barrel racing and it is a soft bit. It is not harsh like most bits. I own two of them and i love them. I know that you will fall in love with this bit once you start using it.
