Description Sizing Charts
Also known as a "sweet 6," chain short shank gag bit this unique bit design offers direct contact similar to a ring snaffle, the shoulder elevation of a gag bit, and the collection from a curb strap. The gag movement allows the horse to give at the poll before applying curb pressure. This mouthpiece is actually very mild and a useful training tool, works well on horses in any discipline. The chain conforms to the shape of the horse's mouth, applying mild tongue and bar pressure. This bit should be adjusted to fit with one wrinkle in the horse's mouth and a loose curb strap to allow 2-3 fingers.

NOTE: This bit will rust when exposed to moisture. This creates a sweet taste in the horse’s mouth and promotes salivation.

Mouth 5 1/4”
Cheek 4 1/4”

Safety note: Horses should never wear bits when tied.
