Sweet iron 2.5 ring elliptical is a milder version of a 3 or 4 ring bit (pessoa bit). It softens the leverage behind the ears and in the mouth. This ring has a double broken mouthpiece and a round center piece that gives pressure on the tongue. The flatter the center piece the sharper the bit. A double broken bit has the advantage that it adapts more easily to the horses mouth than a single broken bit. The bit is made of sweet iron which gives the bit a sweet taste so that the horse will accept the bit more easily.
