Bit Junkie: Nick Sartain's Bit Choice

Sartain was caught using a Kerry Kelley at the National Western Stock Show and Rodeo in Denver, Colorado.

Kerry Kelley Bit

This bit has a nice size to it. It’s not small enough that my horse is scared of it. The A-shape port is a little wider, so it gives the horse a little more relief. A correction seems to make my horse heavy on the front end where this bit seems to elevate him a little more in the shoulders. But, it is forgiving like a correction.
