Great bit for transitioning from a snaffle on a youngster
The purchase and shanks are short enough to allow just enough leverage for a smooth transition into a curb bit while keeping the same mouthpiece I use with a snaffle.

Love this bit
I have purchased several of these bits over the years. Design has changed some, but still a very good bit for the money. Some rusting, but that is expected. Every horse I use this bit on gets along well with it.

My horse likes it!
Bought one of these a year ago and my horse and I like it so much I bought another for my son and his horse. Design has changed a bit with the new one. No curve on the mouthpiece itself, but the horse is still doing great with it.

Great Bit!
I am training two colts and out of 5 bits I've tried with them, they don't "chew" on this one and accept it readily, good buy, especially for the price and not so harsh on young ones mouths

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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.
what level of bit?
Donna H on Aug 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Fairly mild. But, it is a leverage bit so you want to use this after you have set a foundation in a basic snaffle bit. I purchase this as a transition into a leverage bit but my horse didn't care for it. It's pretty heavy. But my horse doesn't really care for bits to begin with. So just my personal experience with it.
How long is the shank?
Carlena K on Apr 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Not exactly sure (I returned it) but it was pretty short. My horse was able to actually get one end in his mouth to chew on. I would think it better for small pony? Hope this helps.
