Twin Bit - 4 Ring Bit - Scourier Bit.
- A twin bit is a bit with 4 bit rings.
- The loose bit rings are attached to the cheek piece and the fixed rings are for the reins.
- A twin bit lies loose in the horse's mouth, independent of the bridle, so that the horse does not grab the bit as quickly.
- A single jointed bit has a hinge point in the middle that puts pressure on the lips, layers and sides of the tongue. A single jointed bit squeezes the tongue slightly under pressure and puts less pressure on the tongue.
- A single jointed bit rises slightly in the middle and can sting the palate. In this case is it better to choose a double-jointed or straight mouthpiece.
- A single jointed bit is a good basic bit, suitable for many horses and riders.
