Steel Argentine Bit with Silver #A1
Description: The Steel Argentine Bit #A1 has 6 1/4 inch shanks. It’s made of high grade 4130 steel and overlaid with beautiful hand engraved nickel silver. Five steel mouthpieces are available and shown in the picture to the left. All are 5 1/8 inches wide and have inlaid copper strips to promote salivation except #42. Mouthpiece diameters are listed in the picture and dropdown.
Purpose: This is a nice mild shank and a good one to continue training with once your horse has advanced from the snaffle. It can often be used when a horse is having trouble or is resistant in a longer shanked bit and needs to come back to a milder bit with slower action for a time. This bit works well on many horses and is a great choice if you want one handy all-around bit in the tack room.
Shown with mouthpiece #2B.
