Shires Brass Alloy Training Bit Loose Ring Snaffle 18 mm Mouthpiece. The Training bit is a double jointed bit that acts on the tongue and the bars of the mouth. The double joint eliminates the nutcracker and palate action of a single jointed bit and instead applies pressure to the horse’s tongue.
The Loose Ring Snaffle is ideal for horses with a tendency to lean on the rein; the loose rings of the bit provide more movement than a fixed cheek bit and allow the rider to move the bit more in the horses mouth preventing the horse from leaning and grabbing hold of the bit as easily.
A medium width brass alloy training bit designed to encourage the horse to soften. Mouthpiece thickness: 18 mm. Cheek height: 65 mm.
