Rated 4.4 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by I'm still on the fence... This is a great priced bit, and when I received it I was shocked at the fact that it was a pretty decent quality; however, the shanks are a little short, as they don't even get past her nose, and my mare doesn't seem to like it as much as the D-ring snaffle, although she does tolerate it with minimal fuss, but she plays with it allot and has managed to get the shanks in her mouth a few times. My gelding on the other hand, who I didn't buy it for, loves it and doesn't have a problem with it. SO as in everything it depends on the horse. September 7, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by Mouth measurement was not correct I have bought bits like this one in the past from this company and this bit was too narrow. The other 5 in mouth bit fit fine on the same horse. August 11, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love This Bit My little mustang mare hated any bit I used on her, ran straight through the D rings, she is so soft and responds really nicely to this bit. I highly recomend it! June 30, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not great, but not bad When received the black had been scraped on the shank, but otherwise in fine condition. Neither of my two horses liked it, so it isn't fit for *all* horses. I suggest buying it to try out the mouthpiece, and if your horse doesn't like it, put it on the shelf to try it on another horse. June 25, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful bit! My four year old Arabian hated every bit I put in his mouth until I found this one. He is so soft and responsive. I will not be moving from this bit for a long time. I also tried it in my new 18 yr old Arabian, and he stopped chewing on the bit almost altogether and started to listen! Great bit!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome Bit!! I've used this bit on horses that were broke to death, and my green horse. It works for everything! The copper makes the horses mouth soft too, which is great and made my horse turn great! Super great price for such an amazing bit! September 18, 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by lov it Very calm horse ..took the bit easy..no fighting..trails neck reining or direct...love ut for my 7 year old August 15, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awsome! I was lucky enough to stumble onto a bit just like it while working for a horse trader, not the best background:) Anyhow I was able to use it on many many different horses, not all were broke, but those that were never had problems with the bit. I found my own throught state line about 10 years ago, still the best bit I have. I have even talked the neighbors into one, and they are ready for a second one so both horses can have their own. :) We love this bit. July 18, 2011

I read some of the reviews on this bit and I liked what I read so I decided to try it. I like how gentle it is on my horse's mouth. It is a three part bit so each side works indipemdently of the other and it is great for starting young horses. It is also good on my older horse.

My horses absolutely love this bit. Both horses are very easy in the mouth and after trying dozens of bits, I found a match with the Dogbone Tear Drop Training Bit. My only negative is that the black chips off which takes away from the appearance and makes the bit rusty. Otherwise, a great bit!!!

There are 3 little gold strips on the bit....do they face to the front or to the back when installing the bit to the bride?
A shopper on Mar 19, 2014
Best Answer: They go to the back allowing the curve to rest towards the back of the mouth. Swivel the shank so that the base of the teardrop should face the chest of the horse. The top part of the shank will flare away from the horses' head. Hope that helps.
