Description

Stainless Steel Correctional Western Bit with Single jointed Mouth Piece and SS Curb chain is designed to address specific training issues or to provide more refined control for experienced riders. These bits are often used to correct certain behaviors or to fine-tune a horse’s responsiveness.

Provides leverage and pressure on the horse’s palate, tongue, and bars. The design encourages a more collected frame and helps correct issues with head carriage and responsiveness.

Using correctional bits effectively requires understanding the horse’s needs and the nuances of bit pressure and leverage. Consulting with a trainer or equine professional can help determine the most appropriate bit for your horse’s training regimen.

4.5″ (11.5 cm)  for ponies and smaller horses.

5.0″ (12.7 cm) for larger ponies and small horses.

5.5″ (14 cm) for average-sized horses.

How to Choose the Right Size:

Measure Your Horse’s Mouth: Measure the distance between the corners of your horse’s lips. A bit that is too small can pinch the horse’s lips, while a bit that is too large can slide around and cause discomfort.

Consider the Bit Type: Some correctional bits might require a slightly different fit due to their design, such as bits with ports or additional leverage mechanisms.

Fit and Adjust: After selecting a size, ensure the bit fits correctly by placing it in the horse’s mouth and adjusting the cheek-pieces so that there are no wrinkles at the corners of the mouth, and the bit sits comfortably against the bars and tongue.
