The 377 Cristy Sweet and Sour Gag Bit is from the Reinsman Draw Gag line. This 3-piece draw gag is perfect for horses needing little extra control, rate, flex, and lift. The copper and sweet iron blend is called sweet and sour. This popular bit combination combines to taste similar to a sour apple, which can help keep your horse's mouth soft and supple, which promotes acceptance. This gag is twisted and small enough to have some "bite", but able to be worn comfortably.

We typically see gag bits being used within the barrel industry, often utilized when a rider is trying to achieve elevation in a turn.

This bit is designed to work without a curb chain so as not to restrict the draw action.

IDEAL FOR:
• Trainers and barrel racing competitors
• The horse that needs additional help with rate, flex, and lift.
• The rider looking for a quicker release of pressure and an amplified feel.

WHY YOU’LL LOVE IT:
• The weighted cheeks allow for a quicker release of pressure.
• Twisted sweet and sour mouthpiece along with the copper roller encourages salivation and acceptance.
• The function of the headstall and bit combination allows the bit to slide up the cheeks, putting pressure on the crown for smooth pick up and release.
• Adds some additional poll pressure.

HELPFUL TIPS:
• The draw gag bit is designed to slide on a shank, rope, or cable cheek headstall.
• Draw gag bits are not designed to directly apply pressure to the bars of the horse’s mouth.
• This bit is designed to be used without a curb chain so as not to restrict the draw action.
• The mild twist adds a little “bite” for the horse that gets heavy on the bridle.

MORE DETAILS:
• The severity of this bit is ruled by the nature of the rider’s hands.
• The action of the gag is almost entirely on the horse’s lips.
• When the rider applies pressure, the bit will glide up the cheekpieces drawing the mouthpiece upwards in the horse’s mouth.
• Cheeks are made of medical-grade stainless steel to prevent rusting and guarantee longevity.
• The three-piece mouth alleviates the potential of the “nutcracker effect.”
• Each bit is closely inspected by a team of expert craftsmen who pride themselves on the quality of their workmanship.

LIFETIME WARRANTY:
• That’s right, we mean it.
• If at any point your bit is showing damage, call our customer service team to receive a prompt repair.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS:
• Store indoors or in a tack room
• Wipe or brush off debris after each use.
• Check your bit before each use for wear.
