When it comes to choosing the correct bit for you and your horse, there are a number of things to consider. If you have decided that going for a loose ring snaffle is the ideal choice for your horse, Online for Equine have summarised the action of the different mouthpieces for you. A loose ring snaffle is a bit which features two loose rings, one on either side of the mouthpiece. The loose rings move freely from the mouthpiece, teaching the horse to be independent in his head carriage and also, the loose ring snaffle design can help to prevent leaning. To ensure that a loose ring snaffle does not pinch the horse, the horse's lip should sit clear of the ring groove when the bit is in situ; riders should always check the fit when the horse it at rest and also when a contact is taken on the bit. Loose ring snaffles can be dressage legal but this is dependent upon the mouthpiece; the collection of dressage legal horse bits from Neue Schule offer enhanced communication between horse and rider. When selecting a mouthpiece for your loose ring snaffle you should consider the alternate actions of varied designs. A single jointed bit, commonly known as a nutcracker, applies pressure to the bars of the mouth, the tongue and can come into contact with the roof of the horse's mouth as there is no limit to the nutcracker action; Neue Schule have re-designed the traditional jointed snaffle bit into the demi-anky which prevents upper palate interference leading to enhanced communication. French link bits were very popular a few years ago as they remove the nut-cracker action of a jointed snaffle but often, they do not offer perfectly balanced pressure distribution across the tongue and bars of the mouth. Over the last few years, lozenge snaffles have become exceedingly popular as they offer a more enhanced feel between the riders hands and the horse's mouth. Lozenge loose ring snaffles are often selected for use by dressage riders as the lozenge can lead to enhanced feel.
