All About Dog Bone Bits

Dog bone bits are western bits designed to lie flat on the horse's tongue while you ride. This is achieved by using a specific 3-jointed mouthpiece with a link that is in the shape of a dogbone. This mouthpiece lies comfortably in the horse's mouth and can have various rings or shanks attached to it.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dog Bone Bits

What is a dog bone snaffle bit used for?

The dog bone snaffle bit is a multi-jointed bit that applies pressure to the corners of the mouth and to some extent the bars. Unlike a regular jointed snaffle, the dog bone snaffle bit also applies pressure to the tongue. The dog bone joint also keeps the mouthpiece from applying the nutcracker movement experienced in a single jointed snaffle.

What cheek/cheek piece options are available for dog bone bits?

Almost any cheekpiece should be available for dog bone bits. The only specification that makes a dog bone bit is the mouthpiece, so there are many cheekpiece options available. However, the most common option is a leverage option with short to long shanks.
