Does anyone know what bit Polly Stockton used when riding Tangleman on xc? I know she rode in 03 at Rolex and 04 at Burleghy.

Thanks in advanced!!!:)

if I remember correctly she used one of those long shanked gag bits. (I can't remember the exact name.) Mary King uses them quite a bit (no pun intended) on her horses I think. I know my trainer has one made by happy mouth, so i'm sure if you did enough research you could dig one up.

Mary used an American gag. Happy mouth makes them.

wonderful. thank you for the bit information. i'll start looking at them. Do you know which myler she had? I have tried one that was brutal on my horse's lips and cut him every time he had it on.
