Captain Sandy Bit


Stainless Steel. Also known as a slide mouth bit.

Popular in both flat racing and harness racing circles.

Available on back-order


The aim is to stop the bit sliding through the mouth and therefore prevent the horse from evading its action.

Effective for horses that are inclined to take the bit in their mouths. The bridle cheeks attach to the mouthpiece while the reins attach to the rings on the slip bar.

The slip bar then allows the rider/driver to have control over the bit even when the horse has “taken” the mouthpiece.
