Korsteel JP French Link Full Cheek Snaffle

Korsteel JP French Link Full Cheek Snaffle

This horse bit has a French link mouthpiece with J.P. curved mouth bars. It is made from stainless steel and has full cheeks.

Price: £26.99

J.P. Bits:
Developed by Korsteel in conjunction with famous Australian horse trainer and jockey, John "Pato" Patterson, these quality stainless steel bits are unique in their design. Crafted with curved mouth bars that reduce the nutcracker action of a regular snaffle, they stop the bit from hitting the roof of the horse's mouth. The curved shape also allows room for the horses tongue and eliminates interference that conventional bits cause. Perfect for performance horses, creating maximum comfort and therefore a top performance.

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 shouldn't t 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.

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 cheek bits 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.
