Master craftsman Jim Edwards of Blum, Texas has been creating bits since 1986. He took his experiences with conventional bits while growing up ranching and starting colts into buliding his our line of bits. What he discovered was that tongue pressure, pain in the horse’s mouth along with inconsistencies in rider’s hands, will trigger an array of instinctive protection responses. When these instincts kick in, the horse stops thinking and starts reacting. Reacting to pain instead of relating to cues can make for a bad day’s ride, and over time creates bad habits that inhibit the horse’s natural athletic ability.

After years of deisgning bits for professionals in the performance arena Edwards expanded his line to include ideal bits for barrel racers and ropers. His line now include a varity of non-palate pressure and palate pressure mouth peices, in both fixed and slider shanks, as well as rope gag training bridles. All bits are produced in Edwards' small shop next to the family home in Texas. Edwards has spent much of his life gaining an understanding of how a horse thinks. His dedication to improving communication and horsemanship has shaped his bits into what they are today.
