What is a full cheek bit?
A full cheek snaffle bit, like the loose ring snaffle
, is a non-leverage bit. However, rather than sliding through the mouthpiece the full cheek bit is fixed in position.
A full cheek bit will have longer extended arms or spokes below and above the central mouthpiece on either side of the horse's lips with a ring attached.
Full cheek bits are often chosen for horse's that are unsure about independently taking the contact forward and down as the fixed cheek offers some stability, however riders should be aware that horses ridden in fixed cheeks can occasionally begin to lean. Should your horse start leaning on the bit, it may be time to consider a loose ring snaffle
