The unique design of this bit offers direct contact similar to a ring snaffle with the shoulder elevation of a gag and the collection from a curb strap. This is a great training or transition bit. The gag movement allows the horse to give at the poll before the curb comes into effect. All of these bits should be adjusted to fit with one wrinkle in the horse's mouth and a loose curb strap to allow 2-3 fingers. This mouthpiece is often misrepresented, but is actually a very mild and useful training tool. The chain conforms to the shape of the horse's mouth, applying mild tongue and bar pressure. This mouthpiece works well on horses in any discipline.
