* Curb Chain:

This bit is designed for the young horse, and possesses many of the same features as the Imus Comfort Bit.  The rider can start the horse by placing the reins on the middle, or snaffle, ring of the bit.  Once the youngster has mastered the art of balancing the rider's weight, halting, stopping, turning, and backing on cue, a chin strap is added to the top ring of the bit, and the reins are moved down to the lower rings.  This gives the bit a mild curb effect, encouraging light flexion at the poll and slight rounding through the back.

One full season of working with this bit is recommended before moving the horse in to the Imus Comfort Bit for higher level training.  Just think how much confusion is avoided, as the horse is already accustomed to the action of the curb bit when it is first introduced!  (This bit is an invaluable tool for retraining horses that have become stiff and sour to harsher bits.)

The mouthpiece is 5" but it accommodates between a 4 1/2" and 5 1/2" mouth. It's pinchless so if it's a little snug (not tight) at the corner of the lips it won't be uncomfortable or interfere with the action of the curb.  If it fits a little large that's okay too because the bit is designed to give a nice rolling request at the lips and there is no point when the rider takes on the reins that the bit is pulled from side to side.

  • This unique bit has a mouthpiece that offers plenty of tongue relief encouraging the horse to drop his head into the bit rather than stiffening up against it.
  • It is built with flush brass fittings in the pinchless mouthpiece and has very smooth independent action from side to side.
  • All Imus Bits purchased from Phoenix Rising Saddles have our registered trademark 4-Beat logo engraved on them for authenticity! See photo for details.
  • All bits are made in the USA using precision engineering, cutting edge technology and the highest quality of materials available.
  • 5 Year Warranty!

We are often asked to clarify what exactly we improved about the Imus Line of Bits

  • They are now precision engineered and made in the USA with the highest quality material available
  • Re-engineered internal workings to strengthen working parts and facilitate the smoothest movement.
  • Lengthened and slightly flattened the copper roller to cover all moveable parts in the mouthpiece.  This completely covers the bushings to keep the bit completely pinchless, and prevents damage to structural integrity from torque. (pictures of lookalike bits often have their mouthpieces and copper rollers edited to look this way, but the bushings are actually exposed)
  • Made bushings internal on the cheek-pieces to strengthen and prevent loosening and pinching
  • Manufactured with their original purchase-to-shank ratio, which is key to effect the proper sequence of actions with the bit. 
  • Manufactured with proper angles of shanks
  • Backed by a 5 Year warranty

Important Note: Our bits cost us more to produce than what the imitations retail for.  Phoenix Rising Saddles is the only distributor of the Imus line of products.  Other companies sell cheaper imitations of the older style bit and sell them under the name "Comfort Gait Bit" or "Training Transition Bit"  If it doesn't have our Registered Trademard 4-Beat logo engraved on the it, it's not a true 2nd Generation Imus bit.
