This old bit was collected in a Dogon village in Mali. Similar bits are still in use in the sub Sahara region by the Dogon, Fulani and Tuareg people.  The metal ring on the bit is placed in the horse’s mouth so that the ring circles the lower jaw. The bit style originated in Northern Africa and was introduced to the Spaniards by the early Moors. From Spain, the conquistadores carried the bit to the New World, introducing it to the Americas.
