Stainless Steel Military Elbow Driving bit with Smooth Port SS Curb


A military elbow driving bit is a specialized bit used primarily in driving, particularly in military and ceremonial contexts. It is characterized by its unique shape, featuring elbow-like extensions on either side of the mouthpiece. These extensions, or “elbows,” prevent the bit from being pulled through the horse’s mouth, providing enhanced stability and control.

The bit usually has a straight or slightly curved mouthpiece and can come in various materials such as stainless steel or rubber-covered metal. The elbow design helps in applying precise pressure to the horse’s mouth and sides, facilitating clear communication between the driver and the horse. It is often used with a curb chain or strap, which applies additional pressure under the chin for better control.

Military elbow driving bits are particularly effective for high-spirited or strong horses that require firm handling. They are used in pairs with reins attached to the driving bridle, offering a combination of direct rein pressure and leverage for refined control during complex maneuvers or in high-stress situations, such as parades or military drills.
