Why choose a loose ring snaffle for your horse?
The loose ring snaffle with copper lozenge is fast becoming a popular bit. Suitable for horses with large tongues or small mouths as the copper lozenge and double joint help to reduce the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit. This bit is very similar to the French link snaffle, but the smooth central lozenge gives a slightly more positive action on the tongue than the flat plate of the French link. The double joint is often favoured by horses as the lack of palate pressure makes the bit more comfortable and the pressure is evenly distributed across the tongue and bars of the mouth.
The ergonomically shaped copper lozenge is warm and encourages the horse to salivate and accept the bit. Made from stainless steel, which is the most common material used for horse bits, it is durable, easy to clean, tasteless and does not rust. Ideal for many horses and most equestrian disciplines.
