We offer a large range of Gag and combination horse bits in a variety of styles of mouthpieces and designs by some of the best-known brands such as Eldonian and Sprenger.
A true Gag such as a Cheltenham gag or 'running gag' can help encourage a horse to lift its head, as when rein pressure is applied the bit cheekpieces lift the bit in the horse's mouth.
A Leverage bit such as a Dutch Gag has a similar effect to a curb bit by encouraging a lower head carriage through pressure and force across the lower jaw similar to a Weymouth bit in a double bridle.
Popular for fast work and jumping, Gag's and combination bits come in a variety of designs and mouthpieces and have different actions to help give the rider added braking power and control compared to a snaffle. Ideally, Gag's and Combination bits should be ridden with two reins to prevent overbending and to give relief to the horse from constant pressure.
