Loose Ring Snaffle Bit

Selecting the correct horse bit for your equine friend can be an extremely difficult task and can depend on the horse's age, breed and oral condition. A popular option with a lot of riders is a loose ring snaffle bit, a loose ring snaffle is a single joint non-leverage bit which does not amplify the pressure added by the rider through the reins. This has emerged as a favourite amongst casual and regular riders alike.

A loose ring snaffle bit features two loose rings on either side of the mouthpiece, the two loose rings can move freely from the mouthpiece itself, helping the horse gain independence with its head carriage, whilst avoiding leaning. To ensure that the loose ring snaffle bit doesn't hurt or pinch at your horse, its lip should sit clear of the ring groove. The rider should ideally always check the fit of the loose ring snaffle when the horse is stationary or rest and whenever the bit receives any sort of impact or contact.

Loose ring snaffle bits can sometimes be dressage legal, however this depends on the mouthpiece itself. You should always double check this rather than assume, but in general these snaffle bits are great for dressage as they offer you a greater communication between the rider and the horse, without the discomfort other bit types may cause.
