7-1/2": Floating Spade Bit
Classic Equine Bits

Often seen as severe, the Floating Spade bit is fairly mild. Like the dogbone, the mouthpiece is broken in three places to contact different areas of the mouth. It wraps over  the tongue with applied pressure. The top of the spade is rounded and smooth for soft  realized pressure to the top of the mouth. It is a great bit to introduce a horse to  palate pressure in the transition to ported bits. Pressure is also felt on the chin, bars, and   corners of the mouth. Pressure is also felt on the chin, bars, and corners of the mouth  to contact all possible pressure points. This bit is commonly used in training and many performance events.

The 7-1/2" cheek style is the next line up in the tool box collection. Extremely versatile, this  bit can be used for training drills, pleasure riding, or competition. This cheek has a 2-1/2" purchase with a 5" shank. The shank is swept back, like the 6" model, but to a lesser  degree, which offers more leverage and control. When properly adjusted, it is still  considered a mild cheek, but on with plenty of leverage for control at increased speeds.
