Bits 

Bits Pony Tack Shetland Showing Tack

Snaffle
Full Cheek

A popular bit for the younger rider or novice pony as the long shanks create a positive action against the pony's cheek when asked to turn provides gentle guidance. The long cheek shanks also stop the bit being dragged through the pony's mouth.

Bits Pony Tack Shetland Showing Tack

French Link
Eggbutt Snaffle

A kind bit. The two joints ensures even pressure is distributed over the tongue and the bars of the mouth whilst reducing the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit. Ponies are also less likely to 'lean' on a bit with more than one joint.

Sizes: 9.5cm, 10cm,  11.5cm

KY Rotary 'Pea' Joint Hanging Cheek

KY Rotary Single 'Pea' Jointed Hanging Cheek A very popular bit for small mouths, especially lead rein and first ridden ponies. The 'rotary' movement of the KY bit mouthpiece is not restricted like a conventional jointed bit. Two years of extensive tests have resulted in;
1. Perfect ball centre swivel joint/s rotate freely 360 degrees independently. Thus preventing painful pinching of the tongue and lips. Independent movement also prevents ponies being unintentionally pulled in the mouth by young riders.
2. The smooth centre ball joints enable the two sides of the bit to turn independently of each other in a smooth and silent movement.

 Bits Pony Tack Shetland Showing Tack

Beval
Jointed Bit

Basically, a modified loose ring snaffle that allows the rider to apply a moderate degree of leverage with the reins, and has two strength options.
1) Attach the reins to the small bottom ring for maximum fixed leverage or,
2) attach the reins to the main, large ring for less leverage.

Bits Pony Tack Shetland Showing Tack

Beval
French Link

Like the jointed Beval bit there are two ways to use this bit. The reins can be attached to the large, snaffle ring which will have minimal lip and poll leverage. Attach the reins to the lower, fixed ring, this increases the lip and poll pressure all the more. Being double jointed this is seen to be a milder bit than a single jointed bit. Used correctly this bit can assist riders who need a little extra help.

Magic or
Cambridge Bit
