Bit Junkie: McKnight’s Bit of Choice
Why Tyler McKnight rides with a Rocky Staples Bit.

Rocky Staples Bits

“It keeps my horse lifted up because with a lot of other bits it feels like he gets a little flatter. It keeps his shoulders picked up and keeps him up in his stop. I can kind of ride it however I want. If I need to be a little more aggressive, I can and if not, it’s pretty easy.”
