Martingale

     This Martingale is designed to help you get the soft side to side neck and soft poll without pulling your horse's head downward. It allows the head to stay out where it belongs where he can balance his body.

     It is adjustable by buttoning he martingale up and down the reins. The martingale part can be removed to have a 7' barrel racing rein. It is made of Nylon and comes in Black or Brown.

Gag Bit

    Top of Page  
 

 

       
 

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 horse

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 BIT.   

 

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!
