AC-700-16 Horse San Joaquin Mouth Bit - length 7.5" - All stainless cheeks with assorted floral and geometric design motifs, are combined with sweet iron mouthpieces each of which are meticulously inlaid with copper. This one has a #16 San Joaquin, which is 2.25" tall, with engraved hood. This line of horse bits appears to be silver mounted from only a short distance away. Each cheek is designed in such a way that the cheeks find a natural balance in the rider’s hand, sending a clear soft signal to the horse. Our cheek designs evoke a time in old west history when class and style were of paramount importance. These cheek designs lend strongly from the best of the old bit-makers of California from days gone by. Ranchers, buckaroos and common cowhands of the great plains are all using our horse bits and strongly endorse them.
