This classic western training bit is constructed of quality stainless steel. The Tom Thumb bit is a very basic shank snaffle that has been in use for many years. It is perhaps the granddaddy of all shank type snaffle bits and gets it's name from the characteristically short shanks. The Tom Thumb is an excellent transition bit from the ring snaffle to the more severe leverage type bit for the young horse. It produces very little curb pressure with almost no leverage to allow young horse to make the transition to a shank type bit. The loose cheeks provide signal and the snaffle mouth is very mild. Features curved shanks, copper rollers to help promote salivation and acceptance, and 6 1/2" cheeks.
