NRS by Dutton Short Shank Copper Wrapped Dogbone Bit Bridle Set
Style #: NRS-CCL-19-SE-RR
- This Short Shank is a mild shank that is great for young horses or leisure riding. The dogbone mouthpiece is copper wrapped allowing for salivation in the horses mouth, thus enhancing the tasted of the bit to the horse.
- The oiled harness leather headstall comes equipped with a slide ear, solid brass hardware and a stitched brow piece for extra durability. Riding with a browband promotes balance by applying the same amount of pressure on either side of the horse’s poll versus a split ear.
- 8 foot long, 5/8” Harness Leather Roping Reins are alsoincluded in this set.
- A curb strap with harness leather ends is also included. The curb strapattaches to the bit and ensures that the bit remains in place andpressure is applied to the horse's chin when cues are administered, thusencouraging your horse to give to pressure and not brace against thebit.
This bridle set will fit a multitude of needs. The bit is well accepted with a lot of horses. Here's how, the bit is not severe meaning a horse won't feel trapped but will respond with lateral and vertical flexion. The shank will increase leverage also allowing for more vertical flex(i.e. breaking at the poll). The slide ear is great for quick and easy bridling and finally, the 8' roping rein is safe for little ones to ride with where as with a split rein they could easily drop a single rein. NRS is also offering this bit as part of an exclusive bit, headstall and reins package. The leather tack accompanying the bit is made of premium harness leather, which we source from a small tack shop right here in the U.S. Detail is important to us here at NRS. From the slide ear to the bit tie ends, which are looped three times for additional security, every piece of this set has been carefully thought out to provide you, the customer, with the greatest quality possible.
