Korsteel 3 Ring Dutch Gag

Korsteel 3 Ring Dutch Gag

This horse bit has a single jointed mouthpiece and 3 ring dutch gag cheeks.

Price: £20.99

Dutch/Continental Gags:
Should be worn with 2 reins preferably; the first rein should be used on the snaffle ring, which is the ring adjacent to the mouthpiece. This rein is then used just like a loose ring hanging cheek bit, which uses poll pressure and lip pressure due to the sliding loose ring also applies various pressures in the mouth depending on the mouthpiece it is in conjunction with. The second rein should be attached to one of the rings below, the lower rings produce increased leverage. In the instance of using 2 reins then the bit can be used as a hanging cheek bit and then when more help is required, the second rein can be brought into play. If the bit is only used with one rein on the lower rings, then the pressure is applied constantly and no pressure release is available for the horse
Single Jointed Bits:
The single joint puts pressure on the sides of the tongue, on the lips and on the bars due to the nutcracker action. The single jointed bits tend to have a head raising action so would be less suitable for animals with a high head carriage. Also they are not so suitable for horses with particularly large tongues because they have less room in the mouth for a single jointed bit as this pushes the bit nearer the roof of the mouth, also Arabs and alike may have a low palate, with both of these examples the nutcracker action may cause brushing of the roof of the mouth.
