    Default Jay Shuttleworth bits

    Got a few of these bits in exchange for work done and am going to sell them on ebay. I have no idea how much they cost new or how much to ask for them. Any help is appreciated!
    Finally in FL, loving the weather but still missing the Green Mountains!!

    It just depends on the particular bit - you could try calling Jay and asking him how much they were new.

    Not to hijack, but i can't seem to find the thread regarding the myler bits with the slots for the reins and cheek pieces... are those legal in the Hunter ring?

    There is no such thing as a legal or illegal bit in the hunters. The operative word in the hunter rules is untraditional or unconventional. So while no bits are specifically outlined as illegal, it is up to the judge's discretion on whether or not she/he approves of your bit choice. Many judges will not place horses wearing the mylers with loops as they are unconventional. Some judges may not notice or may not care. Yes, the loops are discrete, but you can still tell they are there. So, if you want to chance your placing and feel the need to use the Mylers with hooks-- that's your decision, but be aware you may be penalized.

    I think I read somewhere that Jay Shuttleworth bits start at $200 and up.

    OP: If there's any chance you might want a JS bit, call him -- He takes his old bits back in trade for new ones --

    The last number I had for Jay was 914-763-2365. Yes, I think his bits are over $200. They are wonderful but if you order one, his delivery is dreadful. I waited a year for one!

    thanks for the numbers. Yes I know Jay takes forever, I have waited for bits from him, I just think he comes up with some very good solutions for bitting. I'm borrowing on now that I would love to have in my own bit box.

    Jay does really nice work. I have a dogbone snaffle that he made for my now-semi-retired horse that I absolutely love.

    What you'll get for them on Ebay will likely depend on whether they are "regular" bits or some of his more exotic creations, LOL. But I would think you could expect somewhere between $65-100 or so.

    I own two. Both are quite unique. One is a hackamore with a pelham shank/curb (no bit). The other is a broken segunda WITHOUT sharp points, and it's a sweet iron bit. If anyone is interested in these pm me. I no longer have the horses I used these for. They were expensive: the segunda was $250, the hackamore was $300. I actually 'want' to hold onto them in case I need them in the future but could use the extra cash in reality...
