Joyce Loomis-Kernek, a former WPRA and AQHA Champion Barrel Racer and World Renowned Clinician, designed the original Loomis Gag Bit. The Loomis Gag offers poll pressure and independent lateral pressures, helping to raise the head and stand a horse up in the turn more readily than a traditional ring snaffle. Many use this bit as the first transition out of a snaffle. When used correctly, its unique gag action helps collect the horse and lift the shoulder in the turn without being too harsh. Its one-of-a-kind design has been trusted by some of the most prominent horse trainers for more than 25 years, and still is today.
Loomis Gag bits can be used for everything from starting colts to tuning seasoned finished horses. Perfect transition to use directly following the ring snaffle by giving the rider lift and sharpness, which makes it easier to progress the young horse into sidepassing and reverse-arc maneuvers. Excellent for teaching a colt to be collected and helps the rider to effectively communicate neck and body flexion. Popular training tool for barrel racers, reiners, cutters, and endurance riders. Durable blue nylon cord cheek pieces, stainless steel hardware on double-stitched natural leather headstall with dots. Ready-to-use, all you need are reins
