Handmade Bits

I like to think of my bits as extremely functional works of art. I strive to make the finest top quality bits for the discriminating horseperson. All my bits are designed and constructed for maximum horse acceptability, horse comfort and optimal performance. I do all I can to be a top quality Bit and Spur Maker, but only you and your horse can determine that!

Custom Bits from Lynes Custom Cowboy CoAll bits can be ordered plain or customized to your specifications. All mouthpieces are made of sweet iron with pure copper inlay to give the horse a moist and responsive mouth. Bit shanks can be made of cold rolled steel, which can be color finished, but will rust. Shanks can also be made of stainless steel which will not rust, but cannot be color finished.

The custom handmade bits on the following pages are samples of some of the work I have done. The prices will apply for the bit exactly as in the picture. If you prefer some changes, the price could be more or less depending upon the changes. I can also make any style of bit you may require and customize it in any way. Standard mouthpiece width is 5 1/8" but any width can be made. I believe a snaffle bit is the most important bit you'll ever own. I usually have 3 mouthpiece widths on hand in snaffle bits.

  • 4 3/4" - I find this is a good size for starting young horses
  • 5 1/8" - For the average mature horse
  • 5 3/8" - When you require a little extra width
