Table of Contents

A definitive reference on the horse ring bit, considered by some as one of the most humane and effective bits for a horse bridle. From as far back as the fourteenth century cavalry units of European, Middle Eastern, and Asian empires through the Spanish Colonial Period to today, this book offers insights into the history, function, and uses of the ring bit. In addition to the story of the ring bit, examples of early Moorish and Arab ring bits, as well as 16th-century Spanish bits are beautifully portrayed in detail. While no longer the bit of favor, the book documents modern uses of the ring bit in many parts of the world today. This is an ideal resource for collectors, horse riders and trainers, loriners, smiths of all kinds, and historians
