Reinsman created five Bit Stages to help you narrow your focus to the right bit for your horse and riding situation.

Stage A
Great for starting horses, training or maintaining steady contact. Aspects include direct reining, non-leverage Loose Rings and Dee Rings with mouthpiece diameters 5/16" and over.

Stage B
All about transition, with introduction of leverage and curb pressure. Short Shanked bits and half-gags comprise Stage B.

Stage C
Horse responds well to poll pressure. Features include solid mouthpieces and cheek attachments. Swivel cheeks with jointed mouthpieces. Low to medium ports.

Stage D
All about refinement, subtle cues and quick communication. Characteristics include increased leverage, more sophisticated mouthpieces and may also incorporate higher ports.

Stage E
When your horse enters this stage - they are asking for some time with the Professionals. Here tiny twists, very high ports and highly complex mouthpieces are key components.


Reinsman also offers high quality shock absorbing saddle pads and accessories
