TheDever Jointed Loose Ring Apple Happy Mouth Snaffle Bit? is the ideal bit choice for horses that go well in a snaffle but are sensitive or reluctant to mouth on a stainless steel mouthpiece.
The jointed snaffle is one of the more common mild bits used today and is very popular in dressage as it is mild and effective when used correctly. The action of the joint provides the regular nutcracker action whilst the curved arm prevents the joint from coming into contact with the upper palate thus improving rein aid clarity and comfort in the horse. The apple happy mouth coating on the bit makes it far warmer and can help with bitting issues and improving salivation.
The loose ring of this Dever snaffle bit promotes self carriage as it decreases the horse's ability to lean on the bit. As the horse's ability to lean is reduced, this horse bit enhances feel and communication between the riders hand and the horse's mouth.
This mild horse bit is made from stainless steel with an apple happy mouth coating. Please check your bit before each use as this coating will wear with time. This snaffle horse bit is available in a variety of widths.
