This is a good bit for the young horse who is ready to be transitioned from a snaffle to a shank bit. The short gag action allows the rider to pick up a horse when needed, allowing for greater control. This mouthpiece is soft and lies across the horse’s tongue and bars comfortably without pinching. This mouthpiece offers good lift and flexibility.
The sweet iron has a very appealing taste for the horse. The size of this twisted snaffle will offer a lot of feel in a horse's mouth, while remaining very gentle. Weighted rings encourage a lower head carriage.
Mouth: 5 1/4", Rings: 3"
NOTE: This bit will rust when exposed to moisture. This creates a sweet taste in the horse's mouth and promotes salivation.
