Product Info for CIRCLE Y 3 1/2in Flat Curb Chain
CIRCLE Y 3 1/2in Flat Curb Chain is a great 3 1/2" double flat link curb chain that comes in multiple colors to match your existing saddle and tack. It features leather straps and simple buckles for ease of use.
A curb chain is an essential part of horse tack required for proper use on any type of curb bit. It is a flat linked chain that runs under the chin groove of the horse, between the bit shank's purchase arms.
The main use of the curb chain is to enhance and control the lever action of a curb bit. Additionally, it helps to keep the bit steady and in place within the mouth.
The curb chain applies pressure to the curb groove under a horse's chin when the curb rein of the bit is used. When the curb rein is pulled, the shank of the bit rotates back towards the chest of the horse and the cheek (upper shank) of the bit rotates forward (since it is a lever arm).
Circle Y started hand crafting saddles in 1960 in the small Texas town of Yoakum. Still located there, today Circle Y continues to produce high-quality saddles and tack with the heritage, tradition, and care the company was founded on.
