As riders and online shoppers, we know it can be tough to buy a new bridle or pair of boots without trying them on. That's why we moved the fitting room to your living room (or barn)! From breeches to blankets, if you or your horse can try it on, you can return it, free! Just use the pre-paid return label included in your order within 60 days from the purchase date. And of course, please make sure the item is in like-new condition with original packaging (we said 'fitting room', not 'war room'!).

Communicating with your horse through the bit should be just a whisper, not a shout! The Whisper Shank Bit represents the next generation in synthetic bits. The patented plastic formula is specifically designed for this bit allows clear, gentle communication with the horse. The mouthpiece is slightly thicker than many synthetic bits on the market, and the unique design provides a quicker reaction time without being invasive to the horse. Great for schooling or showing, particularly for riders who have not yet developed soft, effective hands or horses that just need a change.Long Shank Sizing:8 3/4" from top of bit to bottom 6" from center of the mouthpiece.  The mouthpiece is 4 5/8".Short Shank Sizing:8 1/8" from top of bit to bottom 5 3/8 from center mouthpiece. The mouthpiece is 4 1/2".

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect bit Bought this bit at the recommendation of my trainer for my 10yo reining mare... She rides soooo much more relaxed in this bit. Not chargy not anxious. Hangs her head!
