This revolutionary bit is gentle on the horse's mouth yet offers the rider maximum control with minimum pressure.
The Pee Wee Bit, said to be the most comfortable and responsive horse bit ever designed. The Pee Wee Bit is gentle on the horse's mouth and prevents injury. It will not pinch the lips, gums or tongue, and it provides maximum control with minimum pressure. It is ideal for competitive riding, re-educating older horses and also for starting young horses. It allows the rider or trainer to give clear and precise signals without distracting discomfort.
The original idea for the bit came from Pee Wee Stevenson, a cowboy from Lindrith, New Mexico, and it was developed for production by the famed Australia farrier Dave Macdonald.
This bit is a must-have for trainers because it gives precise, clear signals that minimize confusion. By applying pressure to the lower jaw rather than the entire face like a snaffle bit, the horse will not pull its head around. This gives greater control with less effort. It stops lugging and horses are prevented from getting their tongues over the bit. The Pee Wee allows the horse to move more freely, without pain. Horses are encouraged to relax in the jaw and as a result throughout the entire top line.
The added suppleness becomes important in dressage and a multitude of other disciplines. Because the bit encourages natural neck flexion and simultaneously helps to lower the head and round the back, it allows for more stable, controlled turns at speed.
This is particularly beneficial for polo, barrel racing and other ‘speed sports. The bit is also ideal for horsemen who are starting young or older horses from scratch. The bit is flexible enough for use in virtually all work a horse does, from pleasure riding to advanced sports.
Made from quality stainless steel that gives a neat, clean look, the Pee Wee Bit has a sweet iron mouth piece that is intended to rust, giving it a sweet taste much appreciated by the horse. Because the bit sits lower in the horse's mouth and is narrow, most horses will take a smaller size than in their regular bit.
