Wouldn't it be nice if a bit came with PERSONAL INSTRUCTIONS on how to use it? The Lagniappe does...

LAG IN ACTIONS
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.
