Sweet iron 2.5 ring locked is a milder version of a 3 or 4 ring bit (pessoa bit). It softens the leverage behind the ears and in the mouth.
Description loose ring snaffle:
A loose ring snaffle is a basic bit with round, loose bit rings. This bit is accepted by most of the horses because the mouthpiece lays independent of the bit rings. The mouthpiece can be single-, double-jointed or straight and can be made of various materials. The snaffle is soft when the mouthpiece is thick and of soft material. The bit becomes sharper when the mouthpiece gets thinner and the material harder..
Blue steel properties: (sweet iron)
Bits made of blue steel are made of a mix of various materials, also called alloys. This gives a sweet taste. The mouthpiece of these bits have a blue or black & nbsp; colour. If the bit is used, the blue or black & nbsp; oxidise the layer, and then become orange / brown in color of the rust. This rust gives that sweet taste. A sweet taste promotes saliva formation and the assumption of the bit.
Properties only broken mouthpiece:
Due to the breaking point of the only broken mouthpiece the tongue will be more free than with a double broken mouthpiece or rod. A single broken mouthpiece works mainly on the layers and the side of the tongue.
Characteristics nozzle with locked:
A ridge with a blockage gives the rider the feeling of a basic bite at normal rein pressure, however, when the horse becomes strong or gives the rider rein pressure, this nozzle offers a blocking effect in 1 direction. It will work as a bar at that time. This bit is therefore not suitable for an inexperienced rider or horse.
