This is a multifuntional D Ring Horse Bit with a two link chain joint, hence the “figure 8” nickname. This bit is reversible, so you have a flat side down against the bars or you can flip it over and it has a a more rounded contact with your horses bars. The chain mouth also has a 90 degree (right angle) twist which produces a semi-locking/rigid quality to the mouthpiece which gives it a similar mullen characteristic when pulled on. The mouthpiece can be either brass or stainless steel. It is much thicker and square shaped compared to the traditional “pletcher bit” we make.

Absolutely love this bit for my horse- he did not do well with the other teardrop style. EquusSport was also amazing to work with and extremely responsive with all of my questions about the bit and also with shipping questions.
