Bit 374

Bit 374 Gentle Guide - 3/8" Smooth Copper Snaffle

4 " Cheeks
5" Mouth

Reinsman - The Gentle Guide is a great starter bit or transition bit. The unique cheeks offer similar advantages to a Full Cheek snaffle. Yet, this bit is even more gentle! The wider cheeks disperse pressure across the horse's face to encourage turns and flexon instead of at a single concentrated point like the Full Cheek.

The slight gag action makes this bit "slower" than a traditional Full Cheek because it takes the mouthpiece longer to engage. The smooth snaffle is a nice average 3/8" diameter and the copper causes the horse to salivate making for a softer more supple mouth.

The Gentle Guide is easily adaptable to a German Martingale for stepping training up a notch.

This is sure to be one of your new favorite bits.
Copper is a soft metal, check for signs of wear before each use.
