Reinsman Josey-Mitchell Chain Gag Short Shank
#0132-1000 – Stage B
7″ Cheeks 5″ Mouth
Chain Mouthpiece-Chain Curb-Short Shank: This bit is selected by Ty Mitchell and Martha Josey for practice and slow work. Brow iron chain mouth prevents the horse from bracing on the bit. The extended gag action offers bend and flexion of the poll.
Remember: start with the lightest bit possible and progress from there. It’s difficult to move backwards.

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.
