Master Traditionalist Bit by Les Vogt

“I like that bit because you pull on them and they don’t really bend—it’s even pressure. There’s a solid slobber bar on it and it’s all solid. I don’t use it a whole lot but, when you get a horse that you want to know if you are pulling them and turning their head, this bit is a pretty good one to use.”

—Tom Richards,
Two-time NFR qualifier
