I met Kerry Kelley at his booth at the Southpoint Arena in December 2016 during the World Series Roping. I have a heel mare who has a narrow mouth, similar to some of the cutting horses that I’ve seen, and was in search for a well-balanced bit that would fit her. Also, we use our horses for branding, sorting and other activities outside of team roping so I was looking for some lighter bits for those activities. I ran into a friend from Texas who knew my mare and he recommended I look at the bits in Kerry’s booth. I asked my friend which bit he thought would suit my mare, and he told me I that I needed them all. I laughed and quickly found Kerry to discuss what I was looking for. I ended up purchasing the 02-S-20 Slowtwist Half Dropball and a J2 short mouthpiece on a N75 shank. Kerry requested that I contact him if I wasn’t happy with either of these bits which immediately impressed me that he had so much confidence in his products. I got home from Vegas and immediately tried the bits out on my mare and several of our other rope horse (3 head horses and 2 heel horses)… I quickly realized my friend from Texas was right… I needed them all! I placed another order with Kerry online for a few of the others in our remuda and our Texas friend sent us a pair of Kerry Kelley spurs as a gift. I am not only impressed with the quality and performance of the bits and spurs but with the customer service and knowledge that Kerry and his team offers. I am no bit expert but I do know when they work and it’s nice to know I have an expert who can understand my riding goals and recommend the right bit for the job!!

My 18 y/o Head Horse has learned every trick. I could not keep him stood up until I discovered KK's twisted correction bit. He's back doing it!

I love my Kerry Kelley Al Dunning bit! I use it on a lot of horses and won the ACHA $500 and $1200 Novice in Alberta Canada in June with it!

Thanks for the quick delivery on the bit. I really like the quality and the way it looks. The ordering process was easy and I really liked that. I'll be sure and check back if I need another bit. Thanks again
