Description D-snaffle bit:
A D- bit is the same as an eggbutt only the bit rings has the shape of a ‘D’. The straight section of the bitring ensures a ‘limitation’ and pressure distribution on the mouth and cheek of the horse. This makes the horse easier to turn and stops the bit from pulling through the mouth. This makes the D-snaffle bit useful for schooling young horses. Attention: this bit is a bit sharper than a loose ring snaffle or an eggbutt snaffle bit. This bit lies stable and calm in the mouth.
Properties Single jointed mouthpiece:
Due to the breaking point of the single jointed mouthpiece the tongue will be more free than with a double jointed mouthpiece. A single jointed mouthpiece works mainly on the layers and the side of the tongue.
Features of a (cherry) roller :
This mouthpiece consists of roller particles . The rollers are designed to stop the horse from taking hold of the bit. It also helps to stop horses that lean on the bit. Because the mouthpiece is completey mobile, they cannot lean on it like the fixed mouth bits. The rollers also encourage the horse to play with the bit, which encreases the salivation. This is a fairly friendly mouthpiece .
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.
