    Default What type of bit is this?

    Anyone know? I've never seen one before, and I can't seem to find one elsewhere.

    Ahh.... I'd like to introduce to you the grand, D ring (obviously), waterford bit. At least I believe that is what it is called. Do you own it? Do the little balls roll? if so, it is a waterford (I believe so, its been a few months since my last tack-shop extravaganza, and my horses are happy in their bits.

    Very Useful, indeed!

    I don't think it's a waterford because it doesn't crumble/break when you push on it or fold it or anything! And the links are smaller than a normal waterford!

    I have the same bit in a full cheek. I bought it used and the seller called it a "roller ball" full cheek. It doesn't really "roll" though, just flexes. It’s similar to a Waterford, but doesn’t fully collapse. The closest I’ve found is this Pessoa bit but it’s not the same…

    I’ve been looking for a Dee ring and can’t find one anywhere.
    Please let me know if you know where I can purchase one in a Dee. Thank you!

    Yeah, I wouldn't consider it a typical Waterford. Although I have no idea what the technical name would be. Maybe D-ring spin-ey ball bit?

    Myler makes a triple barrel. You can order it in any cheek. http://mylerbitsusa.com/images/barre...nt_and_Top.jpg
    I used this bit on a pony of mine years ago. I liked the way it worked for him.
    This is not the same as a Waterford bit. It collapses very, very little and the barrels roll.
