Love this bit!
So far I'm loving this bit and so is my horse. I also bought one for a friend! I usually use the much more expensive bits in this style but for the money this is a great deal! I like the feel you can get with your horse using this bit. I definitely recommend it!

Great bit!
Great bit at a great price. Just what I was looking for. I looked at similar bits that were over $100.00 so glad I found this bit!

Excellent bit great price
Very nice bit for getting a horse to engage whole body and soften head. The roller isn't exactly a typically roller they can play with just there to make the bit move individually side to side and not one straight motion back. Great price and it is pretty to look at. Horse enjoyed it. Excited to see how he continues

Nice. Low port, but good fine control.
A nice, fairly inexpensive bit, but w/good fine control for each side w/o that sharp pressure on the mouth roof that u get w/a normal snaffle. Easy on their mouth. My horse is much happier.

GREAT bit for the price
This bit is wonderful for the price, and it has been a good "mid-transition" bit for my gelding! He went from a snaffle to a 3 piece curb bit w/ a roller, to this low ported bit. LOVE the independent side action, I feel that it gives very clear cues to the horse. He is very responsive in this bit - he took to it like he'd been using it for years. Great little bit!

Very nice quality
I bought this bit because it was what was being used in my horse's training and I wanted to use the same kind of bit. It feels very heavy and durable and works very well. My horse doesn't seem to have any problem with it.

great bit for a very reasonable price
Was recommended this bit by our trainer. We now ride all our horses in this bit and they all love it.

Decent quality at a decent price
I was looking at the Francois Gauthier bit of the same design, but that is usually $50. I wasn't willing to spend that on a bit that I wasn't sure my green draft cross gelding would like. Found this option and I'm VERY happy with the quality. The only thing I would change is that this bit has the stainless steel mouth and I'd prefer sweet iron. But, if my gelding likes this bit, I know I can upgrade later.Just as a note, the mouthpiece actually measures at 5.5", not 5".

Love this bit
I went from a snaffle to this bit on my QH mare. She responded nicely. I read the other reviews that said the bit locked on them, so far I have not had that problem. Over all this has been a good thing for me.

Very versatile.
Every single horse I have used this bit on has performed great in it. It has now moved up to be my primary show bit. I've gotten many compliments on it, and I would recommend it to anyone!

To use on a young gelding.

This Bit has changed my horses life. I have a high strung off track thoroughbred, and she always was hot and anxious on the trail, I could never understand why. She only had anxiety when I rode her. After talking with my trainer about what to do for my horses anxiety, she recommended this Bit because it allows the horses tongue to come up to the roof of their mouth, so they can swallow(seems silly to me) but, it worked. My horse no longer has anxiety when I ride and is calm, Horse approved!

My horse has a large mouth. What size is this bit?
A shopper on Aug 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Mouth: 5" curved, hinged

Cheeks: 5 1/2"

Shank: 5 1/2" Short Shanks with SS Dots
iwas wondering is bit a split bit also?
A shopper on Jun 3, 2014
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?
david f on Jul 29, 2014
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.
I'm looking for a very mild bit with short shank. My husband is very heavy handed and trainer suggested very mild bit. Horse is very broke. What do you suggest ?
Angela D on Dec 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If he doesn't feel confident using a D ring snaffle, I'd suggest the Western SS Low Port Futurity Bit. I use them on my young Rockies. It allows separate input to each side of their mouth and a little more whoa when needed. Still it's a very mild bit.
Is this show legal?
A shopper on Jul 13, 2016
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.
Does this need a chin strap while using?
A shopper on Nov 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, but not too tight. Should have some travel before bit is engaged.
