This bit is a tool for intermediate or advanced riders working on more bend and flex at the poll. The longer shank offers the rider more control than the Short Shank Josey Banana Gag. This bit applies pressure to the bars of the horse's mouth to increase responsiveness. Its design is intended for slow or dry work and is great for getting a horse to submit to pressure. Remember: start with the lightest bit possible and progress from there. It's difficult to move backwards. Call in the Specialist! When your horse enters Stage E he's asking for some time with the pros. These are correction bits and should be used by experienced riders only. Here tiny twists, very high ports, and highly complex mouthpieces are key components.
