Hanging Cheek Snaffle Bits


Snaffles are the most common groups of bits for every day riding. Snaffle bits are identified as having no leverage or pulley action and do not have a curb chain. There is a vast variety of snaffle bits on the market, allowing you to find the most suitable option for your horse. They vary in severity, depending on the type and thickness of the mouthpiece. Snaffles apply pressure to the lips, tongues and bars of the mouth and have a general upwards action, encouraging the horse to raise his head and neck.

Hanging cheek snaffles, also known as half cheek and baucher snaffles, are fixed cheek snaffles used for achieving more stability of the bit inside the horse's mouth or a rounder outline. It sits with the arm above the mouthpiece, with the arm lying flat against the horse's face, helping with directional control and stopping the bit from being pulled through the horse's mouth.

When selecting the correct bit for your horse remember that conformation, age, stage of training, type of work, oral health and your ability as a rider are all contributing factors. If in doubt, it’s recommended that the rider seek advice from their instructor when choosing a bit.
