THUNDERING HOOVES RANCH

Specialty Bits

This is Richard Shrake's line of Specialty Bits  which he designed and produced, which I also sell. Please take a look at the bits and there description and apply what you think will work best for your horse! These bits are made out of sweet iron which horses really seem to drool over with just a little bit of copper.

 

Since I started with Richard Shrake I've only used his bits and have found the best results with the transitions between bits and with the sweet iron  they are more welcome to it in there mouth.

 

Most of these bits have a tapered copper inlay mouthpiece for maximum acceptance and trust by the horse.  All bits are $90.00 plus shipping and handling.
