Darnall Loomis Shank with Medium Port and 1/2″ Bars

For nearly a half century, master silversmith and metal working artisan Greg Darnall has shaped the equine world’s view of bits and spurs and how they are best used in the quest for better horsemanship.

While focusing solely on creating custom bits and spurs since 2009, many of Greg’s earliest bits, dating to a time when Richard Nixon was President, are still in service today, along with a long line of hardware created by bit makers who were inspired by Greg’s innovative designs.

Never one to rest on his laurels, Greg re-entered the mainstream market in 2017, led by the introduction of a new line of bits. produced in his GD Shop in Guadalajara, Mexico.

L064 is made from cold rolled steel with hand inlayed copper bars.

Shank length for the Loomis is 8″, Mouthpiece width is 5″, Port opening width is 2″,  Port height is 1 1/2″ and the diameter of the mouthpiece is 1/2″.

All measurements are approximate, slight variations can occur with handmade bits.
The Medium Port comes in 3/8” and 1/2” diameter.  The smaller the diameter the increased possibility for severity.  The point of pressure is more concentrated on the smaller diameter.  The Medium Port has a suitable amount of tongue relief, with a minimal amount of palate pressure. The Medium Port is going to apply pressure to the lateral bar space. The Medium Port is a very popular bit in our line, because many horses get along with the lateral bar pressure.
