The Robart Victory Show Snaffle Bit has the fancy shanks of the Victory series of bits. This ‘shank snaffle’ has a lot of influence, and care should be taken on the type of horse it is used on. Although the mild mouthpiece gives the impression that this is a mild bit, the shanks add a considerable element of severity to this bit. When pressure is applied, a lot of leverage is available to work on the tongue and the bars of the mouth, but there is no where to displace the tongue, as there is with a port. This can cause a lot of fussiness and frustration to the horse. The mouthpiece is made of stainless steel, and the show shanks have engraved silver and stainless steel studs decorating the dark vintage look of the base. The shank snaffle is single jointed. There is a nutcracker effect, but instead of being upwards toward the palate, the shanks cause the joint to break and press downward instead, pressing into the tongue. The other thing that can happen is the upper part of the shanks can press into the cheeks of the horse. These are reasons that the Robart Victory Show Snaffle Bit should be used by experienced riders for specific reasons.
