Western Snaffle Bits
Snaffle bits are popular among Western and English riders alike. These simple bits put pressure on the bars of your horse’s mouth to allow you to communicate clearly. Many equestrians use snaffles for schooling and trail riding their horses, and they are also the preferred bit for starting young horses and training green horses.
We carry a wide variety of Western snaffle bits from your favorite equestrian brands including Intrepid International, Myler Bits, and Weaver Leather. Our inventory includes a wide variety of mouthpieces and cheek pieces to accommodate every horse in your barn. In addition to traditional stainless steel snaffles, we also carry bits with copper and sweet iron mouthpieces which promote salivation and keep your horse’s mouth soft and supple.
The innovative Myler bitting system takes your horse’s personality and level of training into account. The Myler brothers, the founders of Myler Bits and third generation horsemen, have built their bits in a graduated system that decreases the amount of tongue pressure as your horse’s training level increases. We carry level one and level two Western snaffles, as well as snaffles with ports, bit hooks, and curb chains to introduce your horse to the action and pressure of a curb bit.
