Description RNF bit:
The RNF bit is also called a Kimblehook or Butterfly Flip bit, named after the famous showjumper Butterfly Flip with Malin Baryard. Marlin rode Butterfly Flip with this bit. A RNF Bit is like a snaffle and a pelham in one. This bit is a bit softer than a pelham. The different ways to attach the reins makes it a bit that can be used for different horses. Only one rein is used and a curb chain or curb strap can be attached to the upper ring. This bit is suitable for a strong, but sensitive horse.
Features straight / unjointed mouthpiece:
A unjointed bit/straight bit often works sharper than a single or double jointed mouthpiece. The shape of the mouthpiece determines the pressure in the mouth. A straight mouth piece with tongue port gives more pressure on the layers and keeps the tongue free. The straighter and thicker the mouthpiece, the more pressure on the tongue.
Sweet iron properties
By contact with (air) humidity oxidizes (blue color turns into brown price) the mouthpiece. The surface rust tastes sweet and stimulates the saliva production in a natural way. More stimulation of saliva production, better bit acceptance The orange-brown rust layer (after temporarily not using the bit) is easy to remove with a damp cloth.
