Reinsman Van Hargis Transition Series #2
273A Van Hargis Transition Series #2
3/8″ Smooth 3-Pc Dogbone Snaffle
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 Curb bit has the same mouth piece as the VH Offset D-ring with the three-piece dog bone. This bit is a great alternative to transition bit #1 as a first choice after the snaffle. It is also a great mild curb bit choice for high speed events such as barrel racing or roping. 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. Mullen relief is used on all our snaffle mouthpieces which is a forward curve that creates even pressure across the bars and tongue to eliminate the nutcracker effect.
Van Hargis is a horseman with a message. He is 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.
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.
