- Tom Thumb – Most curb bits come with a straight or ported mouthpiece but the Tom Thumb has a single jointed mouthpiece which often leads to it mistakenly lead to it being classed as a snaffle. It’s often used in the show ring but is also a popular choice for trail riding.
One of the most basic shanked type of snaffle bits, the Tom Thumb serves as an excellent transition bit from a ring snaffle to a longer shanked snaffle or to a curb bit. This bit uses a small amount of curb pressure or leverage. The loose cheeks move independently, allowing for more lateral flexibility.
This stainless steel draft bit features a 6" or 6.5". Tom Thumb snaffle mouth and 8" cheeks.
