Is your horse inconsistent in the contact, chomping or chewing on the bit or tossing its head? Are you a less experienced rider wanting a soft and kind bit for your horse? The Turtle Top is the bit for you! The Turtle Top which is inspired by the shell of the box turtle, prevents downward pressure to the horse’s tongue encouraging the horse to accept the bit and take the contact forward. The Turtle Top link is also flattened to lower pallet pressure and restricts the movement in mouthpiece, keeping it still and steady in the horse’s mouth.
NOTE: If we don't have your size in stock we can mostly get it ordered and to you within 2 weeks.
Please contact us if you require a bit fit.
