Western Horse Bits
Buy Quality Western Horse Bits from Top Brands.
If you are riding Western, your bit needs may be a little different than that of someone who rides English. Western riders typically ride with looser reins, with one hand free for roping, opening gates, clearing brush, or carrying tools. Western Bits typically have long shanks that fall behind the horse’s chin, this allows the rider to have better control with the one-handed, looser rein western riding style. This also allows the rider to have adequate leverage when giving horse commands. There are several different types of western bits like Shank, tom thumb, gag bits, western snaffle, and training bits for horses that apply different types of pressure to the horse’s mouth, these include curb, correction, and snaffle bits. Some Western bits like this Myler Sweet Iron Flat Shank come equipped with treated metal that encourages salivation, mouthing, and contact which can increase the level of communication between horse and rider.
