This is the original Loomis gag bit that I have sold for over 35
years. It can be used for everything from starting colts to tuning war
horses. It is excellent for getting the bend side-to-side (laterals) on a
as well as softening the neck and poll. It is a great bit
to teach a colt to gather. (sit – say whoa – take ahold) It
can be used to allow an over-bitted horse to put his head back to its natural
position and give him confidence. It can also be used to soften one
that is running through the bit. I go back to this bit instead of going to
longer shanks when a horse is getting too aggressive on the bit. This bit
is very popular with barrel racers, reiners, cutters and endurance riders.
CAUTION: MAKE SURE THAT YOUR HORSE’S TEETH HAVE BEEN GONE
OVER BY A HORSE DENTAL EQUINE SPECIALIST BEFORE USING ANY BIT – ESPECIALLY A GAG
PUT VASELINE ON CORNERS OF MOUTH ON YOUR BABIES – DO NOT RUB
HOLES IN THE SIDES OF THEIR MOUTH!
USE WITH GOOD HORSEMANSHIP!
THIS MIGHT BE THE MOST COPIED BIT IN THE WORLD- LOOK CAREFULLY AT
COPIES BEFORE YOU BUY.
I GET MANY CALLS FROM PEOPLE WHO HAD THEIRS STOLEN. DO NOT
HANG IT ON YOUR HORN AND GO OFF AND LEAVE IT!
