#DR055 – 5 1/2″ mouth, 9″ cheeks
This combination bit is a popular choice among barrel racers because of the latigo wrapped nose, long shanks that provide control, the gag action has some give, and the twisted sweet iron broken mouth has some bite. Adjust curb loosely and tighten as needed. Sweet iron is a great choice for a bit mouthpiece because it will naturally rust into a light patina. The rust creates a sweet taste for the horse and makes the bit more acceptable and increases salivation for a supple mouth.
