    I'm trying to hunt down this bit used instead of paying new price and then my horse telling me to get lost. I will consider bits that are very similar, but I really want the short swept back shanks and the dog bone. Does anyone have this or similar laying around they would want to shoot me a price on?

    You realize that the purchase being longer than the shank = more pole pressure, right?

    So look for a longer shank?

    He's riding great off my seat and legs. I'm planning on showing him this spring and I need a shanked bit to show.

    In a perfect world he would just live in his snaffle but since he's "aged," we all know how that goes.

    Get a bit with a shorter purchase, is what I would do. You likely do not need that tall of a purchase , just a low ported, short shanked bit with swept-back shanks.

    He doesn't like ports, loves a dog bone. That's basically what I'm trying to find (but now with a shorter purchase) and not having much success.
