Hi!

I got mine from Neue Schule. I have 3 different sized of their older version of the Baucher, and 2 of the newest model shown here. They go as small as 4"!! Not sure why the sizing options only go to 5", because I have two in 5 1/2".

Neue Shule is from the UK, but there are tack shops in the US that carry them.

That one is nice, but is not a French Link. It's a Single Jointed Snaffle. Not sure if it matters to the OP, however. Bauchers tend to exhibit a bit of poll pressure and stability. To me, the single jointed Baucher would almost contradict what most people like about this bit. (Single joints tend to raise the head).

Would be curious to get the opinion of someone who has used this type of Baucher - SJ, in addition to the FL, on the same horse.

French Link Baucher for $35 here:

One for ebay at $20: http://cgi.ebay.com/4-3-4-inch-Bouchet-Baucher-Stainless-Steel-bit-/110646654221

Just for ponies does 4 1/2 inch http://www.justforponies.com/eldonianfrenchlinkbaucher.aspx

More expensive, I think this is the Neue Schule: http://www.advancedequine.com/Pony-Tranz-Baucher-p/300-ptb.htm

It's spelled "baucher", so you'll come up with more hits spelled correctly.

Some places that carry more tack for driving horses will carry bauchers in smaller sizes.

She currently goes in a double, but I still like to school in a snaffle two to three times a week (and also to hack out in). She doesn't particularly like the fat french link loose ring anymore.


Yeah, the spelling gets skewed when your iphone auto corrects and thinks you're talking about Fran├žois Boucher;) Should have double checked before I searched.

I accidentally bought the Happy Mouth baucher in 5".... in reality it's more like 4.75". If your local tack shop carries Happy Mouth in stock you should go measure and see if it works for you.
