This is one of Charmayne James' most popular bits. Almost all of the horses she has used with this bit on have responded well and like this bit. It is a good turning bit and a good stopper. The chain mouthpiece is comfortable but very effective. This bit is great for collection.... (read more) It has a slightly higher purchase so it will not pinch. Brown iron and silver ball design on the cheeks.7'' cheek with a 6'' chain mouth.
