Sorry Greg, I havenít got a clue. Nothing like Iíve seen relating to modern day riding or driving.
Designs donít change much in the Equine world and it doesnít look that old.

Thanks Val, agree itís fairly modern.
Possible identification on another Detecting site, side piece of a Liverpool driving bit and the reversible sliding mouth bit (missing) is the thing that broke it in half, after 1800.

Absolutely spot on Greg. As soon as I read that it clicked.

I must admit thatís not the first time I havenít recognised a Ďbití. My very first decent find was a copper bit with one side ring. I was convinced it was buckle till I showed it to one of my riding friends. She, of course recognised it immediately. Doh  Embarrassed

Liverpool driving bit is spot on.  There are an identical pair on some tack in one of the stables at Erddig Hall near Wrexham.

Wouldn't a copper bit have put a nasty taste in a horse's mouth?

Donít know about the taste Chris but the thinking is the copper has a calming effect.
You can buy bits today with copper rollers on middle part.
I never had one for my horse. Didnít need any calming. If heíd been any calmer heíd have fallen over ! Grin
