I was disappointed with the bit I received. Unlike previous reviewers had said, mine did not have copper inlay in the roller. It was greasy, and seemed cheaply made. Wasn't stainless or sweet iron, just steel. Wasn't the name brand that others have mentioned, but some cheap china made knock off. Port was also higher than I expected for a 'low port'. I'm going to order the name brand with copper from somewhere else.But service is excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by low port loose cheek bit I have tried several bits and this one worked!
I started my horse on a snaffle bit and eventually she didnt pay attention to it. Tom Thumb seemed to severe, she worked with it but didnt like it. Tried to other bits, not good. Tried this bit and it works great. More response and stopping. Good quality, I recommend this bit!.

Rated 5 out of 5 by CBarMRanch Love this bit
As a trainer, I buy a lot of bits, and I use them on enough different horses to get a true feel for them. This is my favorite bit to use as a transition, I use snaffle and then a dogbone short shank which is very close to a snaffle, and then this one. This is by far their favorite. It doesnt scare young horses from the bit because of its mild action if used correctly, but it also helps achieve self carriage as they find it more difficult to lean on. Then I finish them with a correction. This is a MUST HAVE in my barn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by speckledmonsterpony the perfect bit!
THIS BIT IS AMAZING. I wanted something mild as a transition from a plain old snaffle, and this is perfect. The halves move independently AND the shanks do too, which makes it possible to direct rein if you really need to. It also looks nice enough to show in, too! I wouldn't use any other bit after using this one!

I've been riding my mare with a sold curb and cheek bit and decided to switch to this bit and I can't believe the difference it has made! She is so much more responsive, doesn't raise her head to avoid the pressure and responds willingly and quickly. Am VERY HAPPY with this simple little bit!!

I purchased this bit for my half-arab gelding. He absolutely loves it! He responds very well to it. He needed a step-up from a snaffle as he neck reins and moves off of my leg. I am going to order another one soon!

Both of my horses like this bit. They respond much better to my cues also. Seems to be well made.
