    Product description

     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.

    Often rubber bit guards are used. These ensure that the lips do not become trapped between bit and ring. A Loose ring snaffle should also be a little wider than any another bits because the bit rings move independently and there must be enough space for the rubber bit guards.

    A loose ring snaffle is suitable for many horses and riders. The thinner the bit, the more experienced the horse and rider must be to use this.

    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.

    Properties of a double-broken mouthpiece:

    • With a double-broken mouthpiece, the accent is more on the pressure on the tongue

      Copper ring features in the middle:

      • The brass rings in the middle section offer the horse the opportunity to play more with the tongue, so the horse will show more activity in the mouth

        Blue steel properties: (sweet iron)

        Description gag snaffle bit:

        A gag bit is often an normal snaffle, but extra eyelets are placed in and on top of the bit rings. The gag can be attached on to the bridle with a special piece of rope, called a gag rope. This rope must be placed through the eyelets in the bit rings top to bottom. At the end of the gag rope is a buckle, with that buckle the rope can be attached to the bridle. A gag rope is specially made for a gag bit. A ring is placed at the bottom of the gag rope, the rein has to be attached to that ring.

        A gag bit should be used with two reins. One attached to the bit rings and the other attached to the ring of the Gag rope. By using the second rein a leverage effect is created. A gag is often used for horses who put a lot of weight in the riders hands and this bit is also used for teaching a horse to bring the head up.

        This bit is not suitable for inexperienced riders and horses, as it can be pretty sharp because of the leverage.

        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.
