Forget jewelry for Mother's Day. I want a Sparkle Bit. Handcrafted in Wyoming by Tom Balding, the Sparkle Bit (also known as the Ballhinge Ring Snaffle), is Ellie's favorite bit bar-none at the barn. Brook suggested I get a loose ring snaffle for a little leverage and that we use our plan Dee Ring for shows. Schooling bit with a little bling? Go big or go home.
