A SUPER BALANCED HORSE CORRECTION BIT This is the ideal bit to lighten-up your horse. The correction mouthpiece really helps with the horse�s stop. Loose shanks allows you to easily flex the horse�s head laterally for correct circles and turns. Once good results are achieved, put the horse back into his regular curb or transition bit. Mouthpiece: 5? wide. Cheek-piece (shank): 8-1/2?
