“It has a really good feel, and my horses like it. It’s more of a correctional bit, since it’s broken on the sides. It’s funny, it has a good solid feel but, then, it’s also broken to where it seems to work good on all of my horses. I won it at the Doug Crowder Memorial Roping in Bakersfield (California.)”
