      This is the bit I use for training, showing in reining, extreme obstacle and just overall riding. After starting a horse in the snaffle, this is the bit I then progress to and stay most of the time indefinitely,

        I've had this bit for several years and have recently purchased another one for a different horse. It has worked out just as well as the first one did and we couldn't be more pleased. Well made, no rough surfaces, durable and an excellent value!

            I moved down to this bit for Western Pleasure on my 9 year old horse. Bends all the way in 1/2, makes it comfy for my horse and won't pinch. Nice bit my horse loves. Not much bling for the show ring tho. Ended up buying two bits so I could keep one for practice bridle and one for show bridle.

            Stainless Steel

            Bits are most commonly made of stainless steel. Stainless steel can be cleaned and polished repeatedly without damaging the finish. It is strong, durable, and flavorless and does not impact salivation. Some stainless steel mouths are inlaid with copper.

            Copper

            Copper encourages salivation to increase the sensitivity of the horse’s mouth. It warms up quicker than stainless steel in cold weather.

            Sweet Iron

            Sweet iron is cold-rolled steel. The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet to the horse and increases salivation.  

            Rubber

            Rubber softens the action of the bit as it is softer than traditional metals. Rubber-covered bits are generally thicker than metal.   

            Aluminum

            Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.

            Plastic

            Plastic bits are softer than traditional metal bits and they are durable. Many plastic bits are scented or flavored.

            Nickel Silver

            Nickel silver is a nickel alloy, also known as German silver. It encourages salivation for a more sensitive and supple mouth.
