Here is a link to another video that shows how bits work in a horse's mouth:

I discuss what is a snaffle bit, what makes a snaffle and why the Tom Thumb bit is NOT a snaffle. I also talk about the difference between leverage bits and non-leverage bits. I show a mechanical hackamore, a grazer bit, a snaffle bit, a tom thumb bit and a rope halter. I am not a fan of any bit, but the Tom Thumb is the absolute worst bit out there and far too many people are fooled and told that a tom thumb bit is a snaffle bit, it is not, a tom thumb bit is the most painful and cruel bit in the horse world and should banned, in my humble opinion.

Here is link that talks about going from bit to bitless:

I also have a article written by Mark Rashid linked to my web site which explains the Tom Bit very well.
