The unique design of the Equisential™ Route 66 Bit by Professionals Choice offers direct contact similar to a ring snaffle with the shoulder elevation of a gag and the collection from a curb strap. This is a great training or transition bit. The gag movement allows the horse to give at the poll before the mouthpiece comes into effect. All of these bits should be adjusted to fit with one wrinkle in the horse’s mouth and a loose curb strap to allow 2-3 fingers.
Chain - This mouthpiece is often misrepresented but is actually a very mild and useful training tool. The chain conforms to the shape of the horse’s mouth applying mild tongue and bar pressure. This mouthpiece works well on horses in any discipline.
Dogbone - This mouthpiece is soft on the bars making this bit good for lateral control and collection. A wonderful choice when transitioning from a D-Ring or O-Ring snaffle.
Slow Twist - This mouthpiece allows the rider to help keep the horse focused without a lot of pressure contact. Excellent for softening and keeping a horse framed. This mouthpiece is good for a finished horse.
Smooth Snaffle - This mouthpiece will apply more pallet and bar pressure and is an excellent all purpose mouthpiece which will work well on most horses. Sweet iron keeps a horse’s mouth moist allowing the bit to move freely.
Twisted Wire - This mouthpiece works similar to a smooth snaffle. The twist adds bar pressure helps to sharpen the focus of a finished horse.
Ported Billy Allen - This mouthpiece is a hinged port with a center roller allowing tongue relief and enabling independent rein action. This bit requires extremely light contact.
