Lagniappe helps us TRAIN then TRUST. Train the horse with clear communication. Then trust your training by removing the pressure during a turn. It may take a little practice learning to lighten up, but less is best and your horse will thank you for it!
The beauty of the Lagniappe Bit is that the power is in the mouthpiece, not in a shank. It allows us to send a clear message to a strong horse when we need more control, while still allowing us to ride with butter soft hands as often as possible.
You can think of The Lagniappe like a good set of spurs, here help communicate when we need it… not to be used with constant pressure.
When a horse tosses their head, roots on the bit, braces going in or bows away instead of completing a turn… their body language is communicating that they can’t handle the pressure and need more release.
Wouldn't it be nice if a bit came with PERSONAL INSTRUCTIONS on how to use it? The Lagniappe does...
FOR A LIMITED TIME ONLY.. when you purchase the Lagniappe, you will receive a free Strategy Call to advise you on how to use it to its fullest potential.

HOW TIGHT SHOULD THE CHIN STRAP BE ?
The curb chain is best when used loosely. Typically, this means two fingers between the chin and chain. The most common mistake Kendra sees is that people ride with a headstall too loose and curb too tight. Make sure your headstall fits comfortably snug so that the purchase (top of the bit) does not angle forward when you apply pressure to the rein.
IS IT A SWEET IRON BIT ?
Yes! The Lagniappe mouthpiece is made from what old-time horsemen refer to as "sweet iron" because the flavor of the bit facilitates saliva. As a horse salivates, the bit can glide into place more comfortably which results in a happier horse who is more willing to respond to rider cues.
Would this work for a soft mouthed horse around the barrels ?
Yes! Lagniappe was designed for sensitive mouthed horses that are resistant to smooth bits. Because the Lagniappe's advantage is in the mouthpiece and does not rely on leverage from a long shank, it provides more control when used properly.
We don't barrel race, can we use this bit in other ways. We do ranch-type work?
Lagniappe is great for any horse that either needs a tune-up or one you want to keep fresh in the mouth. The mouthpiece allows a skilled horseman to elicit a lot of "feel" and immediate response from a horse when used correctly. Because of the unique design, we believe horses of many various disciplines can benefit from Lagniappe.

Ride with Confidence is packed with 10 HOURS of instruction, including The Bullseye where Kendra reviews student videos stride-by-stride, exposing the trouble spots and how to solve them. Save years of hardship and delays as she reveals some of the traditional barrel racing methods that fail us, cause us to feel wobbly in the saddle and out of timing with our horse.
See for yourself why so many other students insisted Kendra make her live clinics accessible afterwards so they could stream it at their convenience, learn at their pace, and from the safety of their own arena.
