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.
Features & ldquo; waterford & rdquo; mouthpiece:
Because of the many links in this mouthpiece, the horse will not grab this mouthpiece as quickly. A disadvantage of this mouthpiece is that a connection with the mouth of the horse is more difficult to obtain. This bit works reasonably sharp.
Sweet iron develops through contact with (air) moisture surface rust that tastes sweet and stimulates the saliva production in a natural way. This will cause the horse to start foaming more, which ensures better acceptance of the bit. This rust process (oxidation) changes the blue color of bits into brownish gray. When temporarily not using a sweet iron bit an orange-brown layer of rust can form on the mouthpiece. This can easily be removed by removing the bit with a damp cloth.
