An important object of the present invention Ci which the lever is mounted for pivotal move
is to provide means for exerting pressure on a

The numerals 5 and 6 designate a pair of rein
levers which are curved rearwardly at their
lower ends and provided with eyes 1 by means
of which the reins 8 may be attached thereto.
The upper portion of the levers are connected
by a mouthpiece 9 in the form of a smooth bar
adapted for insertion in the mouth of a horse,
each end of the mouth being formed with an
inner threaded portion l0, an outer threaded 45
portion II, and an intermediate smooth portion
[2, all of successively reduced diameter as in
dicated in Figure 4 of the drawings.
A cheek plate I3 is threaded at its lower por
