Robart Patented Pinchless Bits:
Jointed snaffle style bits that straight and ported with an internal bushing that allows the bit to rotate in the middle. Each side of the bit works independently! Creating clear smooth communication between the rider and the horse.
Robart Patented Precision Bits:
Ported, stiff mouth bit with a centrally concealed internal spring that allows each side to work independently. Whether the reins are being engaged from either side or simultaneously, this amazing bit returns smoothly to the resting position. Working each side of a stiff bit independently prevents the bit from raising on the opposite side, causing jarring in the mouth.
Most Common Problems with Old Bits:
- Head tossing
- Pulls reins from riders hands
- Not willing to stop well
- Horses that are left or right handed
- Do not stay bridled up
- Gap in the mouth
- High headed horses
Like many modern horsemen, Dave Robart believes that less pain and less stress are key components of training a horse. Robart™ Pinchless Bits are based on decades of experience working with horses that had often been deemed untrainable. After discovering that many training issues were the direct result of mouth behavior problems, Dave developed his patented Western and English bits as the solution. By eliminating the tongue pinching caused by older snaffle bits, Robart bits lower stress for the horse and making training more effective. By using Robart bits, both rider and mount will be more successful in the show ring. Robart has a number of Western reining and English bit styles that prevent many common behavioral problems. All Robart Pinchless bits have an internal bushing that allows each side to be worked independently for clear-cut communication. And since the joint doesn’t lock up, it won’t pinch the tongue or cheeks. This eliminates gaping, tossing of the head and excessive mouth movement that are often symptoms of stress and pain. Robart Precision spring-loaded correction bits return to the centered position when not engaged and offers the “give and take” method of reward when the poll is flexed. Whether you’re fine-tuning a well broke horse or getting back to basics with one that has struggled with training, there is a Western Robart bit combination that both horse and rider will accept. Some of the options are spring-loaded correction bits for the give-and-take approach, spade mouth bits for softening at the poll, snaffle bits that aid with relaxation and precission bits for head position work. These bits have stainless steel mouthpieces with copper inlay and can come with steel, aluminum or copper cheeks. Horse Mouth Types
Short Lip/ Small Muzzle
These horses tend to be sensitive in the mouth.
Long Lip/ Long Face/ Small Muzzle
These horses may have a longer tongue and bite the corner of inner lip-this causes them to push down into the bit. Often pulling the reins from your hand. Snaffle bits do not work as well as a shank type bit.
Short Lip/ Big Tongue/ Roman Nose
These horses are less sensitive in the mouth.
Long Lip/ Big Muzzle
These horses may have a thick tongue and not very sensitive in the mouth.
Short-med Lip/ Big Muzzle
These horses tend to not have a lot of room in their mouth. They can go either way very sensitive or to not sensitive.
