Cheltenham gag with Leather Cheeks 5''
The gag has holes in the eggbutt cheeks to accept a gag cheek. The gag cheek is an extended cheek piece that passes through the holes in the gag bit, with a ring at the base for the reins to fasten to, as opposed to the cheek pieces attaching directly to the bit ring as usual. Gags work by raising the bit up in the horses mouth, as well as poll pressure. The effect is usually to lift the horses head up in most cases.
Cheeks total length from end to end 17''
Good used condition, some tarnish , stitching seems strong
I accept Pay Pal
