Constructed of a durable, quality stainless steel. These bits have straight slightly tapered cheeks extending up and down from the ends of the mouthpiece. This design keeps the bit steady in the mouth of the horse and applies some side pressure to assist in steering. Care should be taken with young horses since this side pressure may scare the horse a little. Some riders use rubber bit guards to make the young horse more comfortable. This is a great bit for everyday schooling and yet nice enough for the show ring.Color: Stainless SteelSize: 5''
