FOUND a source for leather snaffle bits! FYI!
Bedford Tack in Shelbyville, TN whipped these up for me today.
They're a work in progress and open to suggestions, but they're not very expensive, so I'm willing to work with it!
They are harness leather, sized to order and the edges are beveled to make them round.
I told them I would inform the interwebz that they are making them and so here I am!

Might be a dumb question...
Are these dressage legal? I just looked in the rulebook and it appears that they would be ("Flexible rubber or synthetic mouthpieces are permitted."), but leather bits are not addressed specifically.
