Classic Equine Professional Series: 7-1/2" Cheek
The mildest bit in the 7-1/2" cheek series, the Dogbone mouth piece wraps the tongue when pressure is applied. Pressure is also realized on the chin (due to the curb strap or chain), bars, and corners of the mouth. This bit works well on young horses just moving to a longer shank and on well-broke or light mouthed older horses. Good for lateral pull and collection and often used with a training fork or martingale. A step up in control from the dogbone, the Smooth Snaffle is one of the most popular bits with all horsemen. The snaffle applies more pressure to the tongue than the dogbone does, giving it a quicker feel and causing a more immediate response. The horse realizes pressure on the chin, bars, and corners of the mouth. Widely used on horses for all types of riding and training activities. Good for lateral pull and collection and may be used with a training fork or martingale for increased control of the poll and nose. Often seen as severe, the Floating Spade bit is fairly mild. Like the dogbone, the mouthpiece is broken in three places to contact different areas of the mouth. It wraps over the tongue with applied pressure. The top of the spade is rounded and smooth for soft realized pressure to the top of the mouth. It is a great bit to introduce a horse to palate pressure in the transition to ported bits. Pressure is also felt on the chin, bars, and corners of the mouth. It wraps over the tongue with applied pressure. the top of the spade is rounded and smooth for soft realized pressure to the top of the mouth. It is a great bit to introduce a horse to palate pressure in the transition to ported bits. Pressure is also felt on the chin, bars, and corners of the moth to contact all possible pressure points. This bit is commonly used in training and many performance events. Extremely popular with performance riders and trainers from all disciplines, the Dogbone bit is a step up from the floating spade. The taller port in the mouthpiece creates more palate pressure. The mouthpiece wraps the mouth, applying increased pressure to the sides of the tongue. The wrapping effect is also sensed by the corners of the mouth and the bars, while chin pressure results from applied pressure to the curb. Often used on finished, well-broke horses used in speed events, roping, cutting, reining, and team penning. Good for collection and stopping.
