Reinsman Van Hargis Transition Series #3
274: Van Hargis Transition Series #3
Sweet Iron with Stainless Roller
8″ Swivel Cheek 5″ Mouth
The Van Hargis Transition Series is incredibly effective and is simplicity at its finest. From the Van Hargis Offset D-Ring Snaffle to the Van Hargis Solid Cheek Curb bit, the key is keeping as many things as familiar as possible to the horse while gradually progressing to ultimate performance; step by step and bit by bit.
This bit is by far one of my favorite bits as it still offers a slight amount of independent lateral movement while gradually preparing the horse to stabilize the shoulders and preparing the horse for a solid mouth piece. This is probably the most versatile bit in my Progressive Bit System. Sweet iron naturally rusts into a light patina. The rust creates a sweet taste for the horse and makes the bit more acceptable and increases salivation for a supple mouth.
Van Hargis is a horseman with a message. He is one of today’s most versatile horsemen, a designation that reflects a lifetime devoted to learning-and communicating-the elements of superior horsemanship as applied in a variety of disciplines.
