Stockman Short Shank Control Plate 45

Stockman Short Shank Control Plate 45


The Stockman Short Shank is a leverage bit, meaning that it multiplies the pressure applied by the rider.

The shorter the shank, the more force is needed on the reins to provide a given amount of pressure on the mouth. The shorter shank bits only need to rotate a short distance before applying pressure on the horse's mouth than longer shanked bits. Therefore, the horse has less warning in a short shanked bit.

The curved shank is condusive to a nose-out head position when working. In addition to campdrafting these bits are suitable to other disciplines including cutting and endurance.

The Bombers Control Plate is set at 45° to follow the contour of the horses tongue. Consequently, a horse who uses his tongue as a means of pushing against the bit and therefore taking control, will draw back and tuck his chin in, coming back to a better point of control.
