Korsteel Sweet Iron Loose Ring Snaffle

Korsteel Sweet Iron Loose Ring Snaffle

This horse bit is made from sweet iron metal. It has a single jointed mouthpiece and loose rings.

Price: £10.99

Sweet Iron Mouthpieces:
Sweet iron is a dark colour metal and is designed to rust. As it rusts, it produces a sweet taste that horses like.

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.

Loose Ring Snaffles:
The loose rings snaffles make a more mobile bit than an eggbutt or fixed cheek bit, which should encourage your horse to keep a relaxed jaw and mouth the bit. The loose ring may be useful if your horse leans on the bit, or takes hold, as the bit is always movable so the horse cannot take hold as easily as they could with a fixed cheek. This bit is also useful for gaining contact as the movable mouthpiece enables the bit to fit the mouth, contour the tongues natural position and sit comfortably.
