Western Curb Bit


A curb bit is a type of bit used for riding horses that uses lever action. A curb bit is, in general, more severe than a basic snaffle bit.

A curb bit works on several parts of a horse’s head and mouth. The bit mouthpiece acts on the bars, tongue and roof of the mouth. The shanks add leverage and place pressure on the poll via the crownpiece of the bridle, to the chin groove via the curb chain, and, especially with a “loose jaw” shank, may act on the sides of the mouth and jaw.


This Western Curb bit does not come with a CHAIN.
