iwas wondering is bit a split bit also?
Best Answer: If you mean is it broken under the center roller,it is not. It is one solid piece,but the cheeks swivel for good communication and lightness. This bit is well made and relieves tongue pressure.My Appy responded to it very well.
is this a correction bit?
Best Answer: You could consider it to be a mild correction bit in the sense that it is a first step up from a snaffle bit. It has short shanks so as to not apply too much pressure due to heavy hands. It moves well in the joints so that light hand movement sends the message to your horses mouth and the low port provides relief of pressure on the tongue. My 9 yr. old Appy responded to it very well. I moved to this because the joint in the snaffle hit the roof of his mouth and he was always head tossing. This bit stopped the head tossing.Hope this helps you.
Is this show legal?
Best Answer: I ride a gaited Rocky Mountain Horse and a Paint. It's legal for gaited shows. I'm pretty certain it's ok for AQHA and 4H too. Nice bit. I use it on both the Rocky and my Paint for trail, training, parade, etc.
