The Gag Curb uses the concept of a Rope gag but instead of applying poll pressure, it is used to apply curb pressure from the second/bottom rein. Although poll pressure is not totally removed as there is a similar action to the Ring or Drop Cheek on the bit/top rein. It is supplied with curb strap.
The Waterford bit has many smooth flexible bumps or bubbles, which spreads the pressure over many points making it a light mouthpiece. The greater flexibility discourages a horse from leaning on it. The Waterford bit is a good choice for a horse that lean, it also promotes mouthing and salivation. The Waterford is usually worn ¼” – ½” longer than your traditional mouthpiece in order to curl around the lips and maximize the effect. Made in South Africa

Wonderful bit, I have a horse with a low palette who needs the Waterford mouth piece but is too strong in a normal bit, great control and soft, this company was great to work with fast delivery and great customer service
