Ok, I have run across these two bits on several sites, but have never seen one in person or in use. Could someone please explain to the class how they work and how they are used? I tried doing an Internet search and found zip. The first one I have seen called a "colt bit" and a "stud bit" on several sites, and it seems to be something that is used on racehorses. The second one looks a bit more sinister to me, I have seen it called a "Citation bit" and a "mule bit" and from what I have read (the little I could find) it is supposedly quite severe. Nowhere could I find photos of horses actually WEARING one either. So, anyone out there have any input?
