Korsteel French Link 3 Ring Dutch Gag

Korsteel French Link 3 Ring Dutch Gag

This is a horse bit with a French link mouthpiece and 3 ring Dutch gag cheeks.

Price: From £22.00

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
French Link Mouthpieces:
The French link has proved one of the most popular bits; it has 2 joints, which means the pressure of the bit is distributed over both the tongue and bars of the mouth. Because the mouthpiece has two joints, it should not cause any interference with the roof of the mouth. The French link uses tongue pressure to encourage the horse to go on the bit and has bar and lip pressure but not a squeezing action like that of a bit with a single joint. The more joints a bit has the less likely the horse is to lean as the bit becomes more mobile.
