Korsteel Full Cheek Breaking in Snaffle

Korsteel Full Cheek Breaking in Snaffle

This is a horse bit with full cheeks and a jointed mouthpiece with players. This type of bit is used for breaking in horses.

Price: £24.50

Jointed Bit with Players:
The mouthing bit with players is the traditional breaking in bit, normally a rubber type bit is introduced first and then a mouthing bit would be used, the jointed mouthing bit has 2 joints, which means the pressure of the bit is distributed over both the tongue and bars of the mouth. Because the mouthpiece two joints, it shouldn't cause any interference with the roof of the mouth. The players, which are attached to the centre piece, provide the young horse with something to play with, encouraging mouthing and are more fun for the horse than just a plain mouthpiece-encouraging acceptance of the bit.

Full Cheek Bits:
Full Cheek bits are a fixed cheek bit, this may be useful for horses that are a bit unsure of the bit as it doesn't move around to much in the mouth, it should encourage the horse to stretch into the contact. A fixed bit would be less suitable if your horse is prone to leaning or taking hold of the bit. Full cheekbits are very useful for breaking in, or bringing on of young horses, as they help tremendously with the turning aids, and the full cheek bit does not slide through the mouth as would a normal snaffle if your horse doesn't like to turn. The bit is particularly useful for horses that nap, as the bit will help if the horse suddenly turns. The full cheek bit works by applying pressure to the cheek when a turning aid is given.
