Why choose a bevel bit for your horse?
The Bevel bit allows mild leverage and offers a little more control, promoting responsiveness and a correct head carriage. The double jointed blue sweet iron mouthpiece with brass alloy rollers offers a higher level of comfort in the horse’s mouth as it helps to prevent the pinching of the lips and bars of the mouth whilst reducing the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit.
Loose brass alloy rollers in the centre aid salivation and can help to calm and focus a fussy mouthed horse. Blue sweet iron oxidises easily which creates a warming sensation and a sweet taste in the horse’s mouth, helping them to accept the bit. Please note that the blue colour will fade with use, this is normal.

Blue Sweet Iron Horse Bits…
Blue sweet iron bits oxidise easily which creates a warm sweet taste in the horse’s mouth, encouraging them to salivate. Some horses often prefer the warm sensation of sweet iron compared to stainless steel which is naturally colder. Sweet iron bits are therefore ideal for sensitive horses or horses that need encouragement to mouth and accept the bit.
