Loomis Gag bits can be used for everything from starting colts to tuning seasoned finished horses. Perfect transition to use directly following the ring snaffle by giving the rider lift and sharpness, which makes it easier to progress the young horse into side-passing and reverse-arc maneuvers. Excellent for teaching a colt to be collected and helps the rider to effectively communicate neck and body flexion. Popular training tool for barrel racing, reining, cutting, and endurance riding. The slip ear style is available in a smooth or twisted mouthpiece. Durable nylon cord cheek pieces, stainless steel hardware on double stitched natural leather headstall with dots. Ready-to-use, all you need are reins.
