Bits with chanks

Products by page

Bits with shanks - Equestrian store Equishop

Bits with shanks are for example pelham, weymouth, hackamore, and some western bits. Shanks are on the sides of the mouthpiece. They can come in three sizes:

- short shanks,

- average shanks,

- long shanks.

Shanks work as a lever and they put pressure onto the horse's muzzle in places such as the jaw, roof of the mouth, and occiput. The shorter the shanks, the more delicate the mouthpiece's action; the longer the shanks, the rougher the influence on the horse's muzzle. The Wildhorn by Busse brans specializes in western, they launch accessories for western riding and special bits with an admixture of copper that encourages the horse to chew. In our offer, you will find single- and double-jointed, flavored (made of apple-flavored synthetic material) bits. A hackamore is a type of bitless bridle, but it also has shanks that work on the nasal bone while riding. You can buy it with short or long shanks.
