The 76 Shank is a unique, well-balanced design for most disciplines. The angle from the headstall connection to the mouth matches the horse’s headset, and the angle from the mouth to the rein connection provides a perfect vertical balance for this cheek. These two angles eliminate all undue pressure on the horse’s mouth unless applied by the rider.
NOTE: These bits will rust when exposed to moisture. This creates a sweet taste in the horses mouth and promotes salivation.
