Short Gag - Three Piece Twisted Wire

Regular price $ 150.00

Short Shank 5" is soft and direct, a great first bit.

The length of a bit's shank determines how much leverage transfers from the rider's hands to the horse. A combination of hands and horse will determine what shank length is best for your barrel pattern.

The three piece twisted wire mouthpiece is firmer.  

All Merrill Bits have a three-piece dogbone mouth. These mouthpieces are designed to distribute pressure more evenly across the horse's mouth. Two-piece, or similar mouthpieces, apply considerable pressure to a single point and interfere with communication.

Headstall not included.
