Western Ported Curb Bits

Reinsman Bit Stages


Stage A
= These bits are great for starting horses, training, or maintaining steady contact. Aspects include direct reining, non-leverage Loose Rings and Dee Rings with mouthpiece diameters 5/16” and over. 

Stage B =Moving from Direct Reining to Neck Reining? Stage B is all about transition, with the introduction of leverage and curb pressure. Short Shanked bits and Half-Gags comprise Stage B.

Stage C =Horses who respond well to poll pressure are in Stage C. Features include solid mouthpieces and cheek attachments, and swivel cheeks with jointed mouthpieces or low to medium ports

Stage D =Stage D is about refinement, subtle cues and quick communication. Characteristics include increased leverage, more sophisticated mouthpieces, and may also incorporate higher ports.

Stage E =When your horse enters Stage E – he’s asking for some time with the Pros. Here tiny twists, very high ports, and highly complex mouthpieces are key components.

reinsman 452 bit

452 Easy Rider Sweet
by Reinsman- made in USA- Stage B
list $99
ours $82.99

6" Cheeks, 5 1/4" Mouth.
The Sweet Iron Modified Billy Allen is a great all around mouthpiece
and the perfect choice for a horse with a low palate.

Reinsman's Modified Billy Allen has more mullen relief than the standard Billy Allen resulting in soft and even pressure across the tongue, bars and lips.

The center barrel has limited movement preventing the bit from scissoring down into the tongue or up into the palate,
but has plenty of rotation.

Sweet iron naturally rusts into a light patina and creates a sweet taste for the horse, increasing salivation for a supple mouth.

The 6" swept back cheeks make this bit fairly soft; and the combination of the Modified Billy Allen and the swiveling cheeks make it easy to isolate each side of the horse's mouth.

Preferred by reiners as a transition bit, and by trail riders.

6" Cheeks, 5 1/4" Mouth.

The Sweet Iron Low Ported Barrel is a great mouthpiece for the horse
that does not respond well to tongue pressure.

The width of Reinsman's ported barrel provides plenty of room
for the horse's tongue to pass underneath, and
when engaged does not rotate onto the tongue.

This bit works primarily off of bar and lip pressure
with some poll and curb involvement.

ours $59.99

6" Cheeks, 5" Mouth, 7/8" Port. 3/8" Sweet Iron
Low Port Argentine.
Very popular in low leverage bits.
We added this mouthpiece because trainers and riders are finding that solid mouthpieces help control horses that tend to over-flex by keeping their shoulder under them.

The low port adds some tongue pressure combined with the small diameter of the mouth to add some control.
