This is the full leather headstall with bit.
Gag bradoons are one of the most versatile pieces of equipment you will have in your arsenal. They were developed for gated horses with a full bridle. It is designed to be used behind and with a separate snaffle cheeked bit. Because of this set up, the mini gag becomes “masked” allowing it to be “incognito” so the horses don’t expect it and respond quickly when they go to pull. The beauty of this is that you hold the reins as you would normally, the horses action is what causes the gag to engage. This action allows you to have great power across the mouth without disrupting the jump or stride of your horse.
It is great for inexperienced riders! Also great for horses who take you down and accelerate in the last few steps of take off and landing or during lead changes. They are also really good with horses who don’t have a huge motor or sulk from more “harsh” bits, allowing you to ride in “normal equipment” and make a training point to get them to listen.
It is the duct tape of bit world.

This bit is extremely rare and the headstall allows you to use it with a regular snaffle bridle. The headstall is absolutely beautifully crafted with high quality rolled leather and sturdy reins. The workmanship is impeccable. It will fit a variety of horse sizes as it is very adjustable. The bit is also perfection, it is very well made. Purchase the bit solo if you want to use it on your double bridle as it does not come off the headstall.
