#9 Chris Cheney

Chris Cheney-
Chris Cheney lives with his family in Rexburg, Idaho. He’s been in the bit, spur, and saddle business for 23 years building mostly California style bits and Wade saddles. With the help of friends, he built his first bit as part of a horse trade as a teenager. The first bit he made while at Miller Bit and Spur School was coincidentally a crescent cheek pattern like this year’s theme. It’s his goal to continually refine his workmanship and he loves to see the gear he makes get used.
In the crescent area of this year’s bit, it is filigreed and sculpted in the steel then sterling and fine silver was formed and inlaid to allow depth to the engraving. It has a 5.25″ wide by 3″ tall Barqueno mouthpiece that’s been offset towards the front of the cheek to help add balance. The steel has a nitre blue finish, including the handmade slobber and rein chain, and sterling conchos with heavy silver rope to complete the bit.
