The Shires Western Tom Thumb Short Shank is a severe bit that is built to last with durable stainless steel. It should be used with extreme care and caution! The mouthpiece of the bit is a simple single jointed mouthpiece that is fixed to the bit cheeks that exert a strong leverage action both on the poll and the tongue of the horse. The stainless steel is strong and non-corrosive. The chromium component in the metal alloy provides the beautiful shine of stainless steel, and because of it, it never needs polishing to look it's best! The Western Tom Thumb Short Shank by Shires has, as the name implies, a shorter shank. The design is still limiting in that although it is intended for a transitional bit between a training snaffle and a curb bit, there are conflicting messages sent to the horse when a direct rein is applied. The direct rein applies pressure to several parts of the horse’s mouth, and the appropriate response of moving away from pressure simply cannot be felt by the horse. The impossibility of understanding the multiple sources of pressure in their mouth when a direct rein is used causes extreme frustration and often extreme reaction by the horse. The Shires Western Tom Thumb Short ShankÊis available in different sizes.
