The Pro Roper's Antique with German Silver cheek is hard for any rider to resist! The 7" medium cheek with a Ôno pinch' ball hinge is stylish and has good control. The Sweet Iron Lifesaver Port is a unique mouthpiece with control in between a chain mouth and a hinge port. It provides more independent shoulder control along with tongue relief, allowing the rider to help the sensitive horse in the turn. Gives you bar, tongue, palate and curb tension, while the loose ring pre-signals the horse for better balance. This bit is rated high for lift and encourages hock engagement. An excellent bit for timed events.
