Description curb gag:
This is a gag snaffle bit, but with a very different effect. A normal gag the gag ropes are attached to the cheek pieces. The curb gag has an extra ring that is attached on top of the bit ring and to the cheek pieces. The gag ropes go through the eyes of the bit, but then they join underneath the chin instead of being attached to the bridle. By pressure on the reins, it will give extra pressure on the lower jaw/chin.
This bit is sharp and give a lot of pressure with a unsteady hand and is therefore not suitable for the inexperienced riders or horses.

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
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.
