    Default What is this piece on the bridle?

    What is that extra metal piece in the horse's mouth? It looks to be on it's own strap over the poll.

    Looks like a double bridle but doesn't have reins attached.

    Its a type of tongue tie bit. It has a bit attached that has a U which sits up along the tongue towards the back of the throat and prevents the horse getting its tongue over the bit.

    I agree with phoebetrainer. It likely looks something like this on the inside: http://www.equiport.co.uk/products/d...ngue_grip/892/
