D-Ring 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.


D-ring snaffles are compromise between an eggbutt and a full cheek. They have vertical bars/shanks which extend above and below the mouthpiece, prevent the lips from being pinched as an eggbutt does while helping to aid turning and steering like the full cheek (though without the risks posed by the arms of the full cheek bit). This combination of comfort, control and safety makes this type of bit a popular choice for faster work and jumping.


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.
