Why a Pinchless Bit? A horse is a flight and fight animal. If the bit is hurting the horses mouth he is going to respond with fight or flight. Neither of these responses are condusive to training, competing or riding. Take the pain away and you instantly modify their behavior and response to your instructions. The Pinchless bit swivels at the bars, rather than relying on the center link to swivel, eliminating the possibility of pinching the tongue. Also it gives a more consistant and immediate signal to your horse, so his response time is reduced, with less pressure. If a horse is not new to the bit and is still gapping his mouth, excessive mouth movement or tossing his head, you will want to try a pinchless bit. Using a pinchless bit on a young horse will prevent inflicting pain, keeping the experience less streeful, resulting in easier and improved learning for the horse. The nice feature of this snaffle is that it can be a full cheek or a short shank snaffle with a curb chain. To use as full cheek, put head stall and reins in the middle ring and it becomes a ful cheek snaffle. For a short shank snaffle put head stall and curb chain in top rings and reins in the bottom rings. A great bit for transitioning a young horse from o-ring to a shank snaffle.
