#20-50 Sliding Gag w/Link Mouthpiece
Add to cart
A link mouthpiece and a stainless steel twisted wire crown give this sliding gag a stronger signal than the common snaffle or the twisted wire mouthpiece. The link mouthpiece is easily accepted by horses. This #20-50 Sliding Gag w/Link Mouthpiece is also available with a 3/4 inch harness leather slide ear crown piece. Choices are shown at left (see dropdown to order). The center bar on the bit cheeks limits the movement of the sliding mouthpiece to provide a quicker action and instant relief. The hard lay nylon cord allows the bit to slide easily. Cord is attached to a stainless steel buckle which attaches it to adjustable single ply 3/4 inch harness leather cheeks. This is a life-saver if your horse has become resistant to a pull and does not want to give his face and/or lower his head. Very valuable training tool for many disciplines.
How it works: The combined pressure on the corners of the mouth from the sliding gag bit and on the poll from the twisted, shaped, stainless steel crown produces the ultimate in vertical flexion and feel. The leather crown is designed for horses requiring less pressure on the poll than the stainless steel twisted wire crown produces. The leather crown works well with this link mouthpiece on horses that are sensitive to pressure on the poll but very resistant to giving to the bit. There is instant relief when the pull is discontinued.
