House Snaffle™
Loose rings give ample play without pulling through the mouth. Mouthpiece is noticeably more mullen for wraparound pressure on the bars and more tongue relief.

Balanced Snaffle™
The only snaffle that puts perfectly balanced pressure on both bars without one side being higher than the other. Eliminates the scissoring action of a snaffle.

Billy Allen
Independent lateral control for great lift and tongue pressure for responsive stops. The limited travel keeps the snaffle from excess pressure on the outside bars. Sweet iron mouth with copper roller. Popular with cutters, reiners, team penners.

Slick 50™
This ingenious design gives the independent lateral control of the Hinged port but breaks in the middle like a snaffle. It causes a horse to bend in the ribs while keeping the shoulder and the head in the correct position. Perfect for younger or light-mouthed horses and is a good transition from a snaffle.

Three 'N One™
Copper rollers spread across tongue to promote leverage on the bars and tongue pressure. Copper rings are good for nervous horses.

Dr. Tom™
A Bristol type bit. Three piece mouth gives wraparound pressure on the bars and spreads pressure across the tongue. Nice transition bit from a snaffle to a shank.

Twisted Witch™
A more severe mouthpiece ideal for tuning and intermittent training. Used alternately it softens the mouth, making the horse more responsive to their regular bit. Available in a hex (less severe) or square (more severe) twist.

Double Cross™
Many trainers favor this bit over a snaffle for young horses. Unique design restricts the horse from getting its tongue over the mouthpiece. A mild bit that gives remarkable control while keeping the head down. Easily accepted by the majority of horses.
