Snaffle 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 bit 374


374 Gentile Guide
by Reinsman- made in USA- Stage B
list $79.95
ours $69.99

4 1/2" Cheeks, 5" Mouth. 3/8" -Smooth Copper Snaffle .
A great starter or transition bit.
The unique cheeks offer similar advantages to a full cheek snaffle, but is even more gentle!

The wide cheek disperse pressure across the horse's face to encourage turns and flexion instead of a single concentrated point like the full cheek.

The slight gag action makes this bit slower than a full cheek because it takes the mouthpiece longer to engage.

The smooth snaffle is a nice average 3/8" diameter and the copper cases the horse to salivate making for a softer more supple mouth.

list $80
ours $68.99

5 1/2" Cheeks, 5" Mouth.
The Just Enough is a very nice transition bit when moving
from the ring snaffle to a curb bit.

The 3-piece ergonomically designed mouthpiece results in soft and
even pressure across the tongue, bars and lips.

Sweet & Sour mouthpiece tastes like a green apple
dipped in molasses and is sure to become your horse's favorite!

The sweet and sour combination causes increased salivation, leading to a more relaxed jaw and a supple mouth.

6" Cheeks, 5 1/4" Mouth.

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.
