Monte Mitts, the designer & maker of this bit was given an old rusty bit made from sweet iron in 1947. In 1994, the bit was lost in the mountains after a riding accident. We tried dozens of different bits and Candy (his horse) hated them all. He decided to make his own, and it has been accepted by all our horses. We've had positive feedback from many people with "problem" horses who have tried this bit.
These hand crafted Mitts Bits™ are approximately 5 inches wide. We do not recommend narrower bits, as they tend to irritate the side of the horses face. The design of the mouthpiece will accommodate most jaw sizes. The slight curve allows comfortable tongue room without gouging the roof of the mouth when pressure is applied to the reins.
