D & L Reiner 1/2" Billy Allen Mouth Bit
One of the nicest medium control shanks ever made.
Key Features of the Billy Allen Mouth Bit:
- Shanks have excellent balance and will not pinch.
- Can be ridden with a 4-rein to train.
- Mouth is one of the least severe snaffles.
- The limited travel keeps the snaffle from excess pressure on the outside bars.
- The roller, while acting as a pacifier for the nervous horse, also applies light tongue pressure for a better head set (#791).
Cheek: 7"; Mouth: 5"
- Brand: Reinsman

- Mouthpiece: Billy Allen
- Cheek Length: 7"
"LOVE this bit!"
I love this bit as it has a flat roller without a curb or loose connecting joints. My mare accepted this bit without any issues; she worked horribly in snaffles, hated hackamores, and would throw her head in curbs. She was very responsive and happy in this bit, although I changed out the chained chin strap for a flat leather one. Another plus is that is has individual side swivel action- you can plow rein if needed for extra direction for training or on the trail, unlike most bits with shanks. Exceptional performance, quality, humane bit! Will keep a horse very soft in the mouth if used by a light-handed rider.
