  5. Shires Sweet Iron Copper Roller Snaffle

    RRP £17.99

    From: £15.00

    The Shires Sweet Iron Copper Roller Snaffle is designed with a sweet iron mouthpiece and a copper roller centre. Sweet iron oxidises to produce a sweet taste, helping to encourage acceptance of the bit and of a contact. It also warms quickly, as does copper, providing a more pleasant feel for the horse.

    The double joint and loose rings allow the bit to move within the horse's mouth which prevents leaning. The free-moving rings in the centre of the bit can promote play which can further increase acceptance; however, by creating an uneven surface these rings increase the bits severity which can help to give the rider better control. The mouthpiece is reasonably thin, measuring 14mm, which may suit horses with smaller mouths.

    Bit rings measurement: 65mm

    - Double jointed mouthpiece and loose rings prevent the horse from fixing or leaning
    - Moving rings in the centre of this bit increase the severity, offering the rider more control
    - The moving rings can also help to promote play
    - Sweet iron and copper combination is warmer than stainless steel and produces a sweet taste, encouraging acceptance
    - 14mm mouthpiece thickness is ideal for horses with smaller mouths

    Available in 4.5", 5", 5.25", 5.5" and 6"

  7. Shires Double Jointed Copper Lozenge Pelham
    £29.99

    Online for Equine offer the Shires Double Jointed Copper Lozenge Pelham.

    This Pelham is often employed in show horses and for those that need extra control and steering than that offered by a gag bit. The Pelham employs the use of curb pressure for improved control in conjunction with increased poll pressure.

    The copper lozenge on this Pelham helps to improve softness and can prevent the horse from becoming wooden in the hand. As copper rapidly warms to body temperature, many horses will soften and relax on the bit.

    The Shires Double Jointed Copper Lozenge Pelham is available in widths 4.5" - 6".

The small bit rings are designed to fit neatly as a double or to look proportionate for a small headed horse or pony.
