Thigh and gag bits at pferdeladen.eu
Thigh bits provide direct transmission of the reins to the tongue and lower jaw.
Gag bits are one of the oldest used bits at all, for attachment to halters or stable halters, by fixed side pieces, thus the bit has a quiet position in the horse's mouth and is gentle on the mouth angle. Lateral limitation supports when riding turns, especially with horses that tend to break out over the shoulder. The sides prevent the bit from being pulled through the mouth.
