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.
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 side-passing 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 racing, reining, cutting, and endurance riding.
Durable cord cheek pieces on double stitched chocolate leather or natural leather headstall.
Smooth Snaffle is stainless steel. Twisted Wire Snaffle has a sweet iron mouthpiece with stainless steel cheek. Ready to use - all you need are reins.
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.
