Classic Equine Rickey Green Shank Chain Bit
The pinchless mouthpiece of the Classic Equine Green Shank Chain Bitis shaped to lay flat across the mouth and tongue and it attaches to the shank in a manner that softly cues the horse as pressure is applied. This is a great bit for training
The Shank Chain Bit allows for collection helping the horse break at the poll and the gentle action of the mouthpiece teaches a horse to lift his shoulder and prepare to stop. Rickeys bits were designed for training practice or competition and feature a loose-cheek shank to encourage lateral flexion and will allow the rider to control the horses nose. Rickey recommends using a firm leather curb strap or flat chain with all bits in this series to allow the horse to feel and work off of the bit rather than react to the feel and pressure of a biting curb.
