Also known as a continental bit, it works by raising the bit in the horse's mouth in a similar way to a traditional gag but without the same severity. The reins can either be attached to the snaffle ring, or the lower ring for increased poll pressure and leverage. You can also use two reins or rounding's attached to a single rein with this bit so that a correct contact can be maintained on the snaffle ring without poll pressure when needed.
An anatomical copper lozenge in the centre helps to distribute even pressure over both the tongue and bars of the mouth and also encourages mouthing and contact. Copper is a warm metal that encourages the horse to salivate and to mouth on the bit. Ideal for horses who require extra braking power when jumping or doing fast work.
As per our size guide the A & B measurements of this bit are as follows:
4.5" & 5" - A=16mm & B=115mm
5.5" & 6" - A=16mm & B=145mm
Stainless Steel Horse Bits...
Stainless steel is the most commonly used material for horse bits as it is durable, easy to clean and does not rust. Some of our stainless steel bits feature copper mouthpieces which help to create a warming sensation and encourage the horse to salivate and accept the bit. Stainless steel bits are suitable for a wide range of horses and are available in many designs so that you can choose the right bit for your horse and discipline.
