Jim Edwards Bits- Ball Correction Half Ring Gag
The stiff yet flexible shanks are what make Jim Edwards gag bit so unique and unconventional. The rope's resistant body allows the shank to bounce back like a rubber shank. It slows down and muddles the inconsistencies of the riders hands. Horses are very accepting and understanding of this gag because the cues are slow and unbinding. The horse feels comfortable, and therefore receptive to training.
Full Ring: The centered shank on the bit offers lateral flexion and directional cues.
Half Ring: A step up in the education from the full ring, it offers increased leverage and more control over forward movement.
