    Default Where to buy this kind of bit?

    I am trying to purchase a very specific kind of full cheek snaffle with a ported mouthpiece. (I believe that is what it technically is). I have finally found THE miracle bit that works for my sensitive OTTB's mouth, yet gives me the control I need. It is NOT a typical segunda. It has one solid piece of metal for the mouthpiece. No joints or rollers. The middle port looks like these :

    And the cheek pieces look like a normal full cheek snaffle would: http://www.smartpakequine.com/korste...FRGqnQodCTsADw

    Any ideas on what the proper name for this bit is? Also, any ideas where I can buy one? Thanks in advance! The COTH "powers that be" ALWAYS know.

    You might could have it custom built.

    Not a solid mouth, but:

    Also not sure if you specifically want a low, wide port or is a correction-style port ok?

    A solid mouth, but has a roller:

    Terrible photo, and the cheek does have a hook or rein slot on it, but a wider port:

    You could always go custom too, as the previous poster mentioned.

    - Almost. The one I used just had a very gradual smooth port which seemed to be the perfect balance between too much for him and just enough for me. I almost feel like an actual segunda might be TOO much.


    These several that have been posted are all CLOSE but not quite right. Will take a picture of the actual bit I borrowed and post it. Thanks for the suggestions!

    BTW, a port can actually be milder than a mullen or a jointed bit. My horse has come to love a Myler MB33, which someone above linked to. It keeps the pressure off his tongue. There are Myler bit rental programs so you can try before you buy.

    I am absolutely coming to this realization. Really interesting, and thanks for the Myler info!

    I agree with IFG - Try a Myler
