Durable, easy, and painless
This has been the bit of choice for me and my horse for about 7 years now. For an $11 bit, you would think it would have broke by now, but nope. And this is not been lightly used, this bit I have used at least twice a week for 7 years. I found out quite quickly through trial and error that my horse disdains snaffles and broken mouthpiece style bits. Haven't had a need to switch since finding this bit. Started rusting after a year or two, hence sweet mouth. Love this bit and so does my horse. Ordered another one today for a new bridle, got tired of moving this bit around to all my different headstalls.

These bits are great., I like to use them on colts that are started or older horses that have always had snaffel bits, the double position makes it ideal and they are affordable

Well made bit, excellent quality for the price
I have only tried this bit on my horse one time so far, but it is very nicely made and I was impressed with the quality since it has a low price! Definitely worth the money. It has a mouth piece that provides a lot of tongue relief and my horse likes to hold the bit up w/ his tongue and "suck it up" so that I barely have to give any signal and he is already responding. He hates tongue pressure so this bit is absolutely perfect!

Love these bits
I have three of these - two with the longer shanks. My horse and I both love them. They aren't fancy, but the horses are so relaxed with this bit. Also love the loose jaw. Not sure what they are calling sweet iron. None of mine have rusted.

My horse responds well to this and his mouth and head is much more quiet. Love it!

Horses love it
I have a horse that has been hard to bit due to injury long before she found her way to me. This gives me the control I need without the pressure to her tongue.

Good bit for the price
This bit is a good bit for the price. It's in the style that I like that is so hard to find. The only complaint is that when I got mine, the angles on the shanks didn't match exactly but a couple of bangs with a hammer and anvil and it's just fine. Horses ride well in it. Nice, affordable, low-leverage bit with a kind mouth on it.

Would this be an ok bit for a 9 year old that needs to move up out of a snaffle?
A shopper on Jun 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Definitely. This bit has a short shank and the curved mouthpiece gives the tongue relief. Make sure the curb chain that you use is not too tight and not too loose. A snug two fingers width between the horses chin groove (where the chain presses when you pull on the reins) and the curb chain is just right. Snaffles tend to let horses lean on your hands, if you are not paying attention. A short shank mullet mouth bit like this can make a horse more responsive by using the gentle "one rein at a time" approach. That means don't pull back with both reins, gently bump with one rein and when the horse backs off the bit, release the pressure and keep light contact, not light pulling. You can always stop a horse with one rein better than two. I hope my tangient of an explanation helped. A horse's mouth is a complicated thing! Always respect it.
Can you direct rein with this bit?
A shopper on Mar 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: With the reins attached to the snaffle ring (the ring level with the mouthpiece), yes! If you have the reins attached on the shanks (the lower ring) the leverage does not play well with direct reining. The action will be wonky and can hurt the horse's mouth.
