Full 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.


Full cheek snaffles are identified by the two arms or bars extending up from the bit rings. The mouthpiece is fixed to these bit rings, which results in a bit which lies stable and calm in the horse’s mouth. These “arms” or “bars” help to aid turning and steering, as well as ensuring the bit cannot be pulled through the horse’s mouth – as a result this bit is useful for schooling young horses.


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.
