Rickey's bits were designed for training, practice or competition and feature a loose-cheek shank to encourage lateral flexion and will allow the rider to control the horse's nose. The contoured shape of the Long Shank Snaffle makes the mouthpiece comfortable for the horse to carry with a 3" purchase that provides the leverage required to lift the horses head and shoulder, which keeps the hind quarters collected. Rickey recommends using a firm leather curb strap or flat chain with all bits in this series to allow the horse to feel and work off of the bit rather than react to the feel and pressure of a biting curb.
