Why choose a hanging cheek snaffle for your horse?
The Hanging cheek is a fixed cheek bit which helps encourage flexion, making this bit is especially useful for horses with a high head carriage. Can also be useful for horses that are unsure of the bit as it has limited movement in the mouth.
The double jointed mouth piece with brass alloy lozenge distributes the pressure evenly over the tongue and bars of the mouth whilst aiding salivation and also helping to calm and focus the 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.
As per our size guide the A & B measurements of this bit are as follows:
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.
Please note, for reasons of health and hygiene this bit is non returnable if removed from the template.
