The original Argentine Snaffle Mouth bit, the preferred bit for gaited horses. Stainless Steel. A great transitional bit. Can be used with the rein attached to the snaffle ring or the shank. Can even be used with two reins. Even though this bit has a snaffle mouth it is still a curb bit. note the curved shank. This will create a slower response than a straight shanked bit. This bit also features small loops on the shanks for a lip strap if your horse tosses his head. (keeps the bit from flipping up). 5"
