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. Stainless steel mouthpiece.
