Gag Bits

The Gag bit is a non curb leverage bit that is very severe in its action.  Depending on design they may outwardly resemble a Snaffle or Curb, but with added slots or rings that provide leverage by sliding the bit up in the horses mouth.

Gag bits are used mainly for horses that are strong pullers or for horses that need retraining.  Not recommended for novice riders.
