Description Sizing Charts
Also known as a "sweet 6," shirt shank gag snaffle 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 is a great training or transition bit. The snaffle mouthpiece applies more palate and bar pressure and is an excellent all purpose mouthpiece that will work well on most horses. 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.


Mouth 5 1/4”
Shank 4 1/4”

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

Safety note: Horses should never wear bits when tied.
