Sweet Iron Bits

Finding the best fit when it comes to a horse bit for your four-legged friend can be extremely tasking and difficult. With so many different factors to consider when it comes to bits, we at Online for Equine understand that the choice is extremely difficult; you can now call our team and speak to our bitting expert if you have any questions or concerns you need addressing from an industry leading team.

Sweet iron bits are a particular popular and interesting selectin, the metal in the bit actually rusts away (which in other cases would be a bad thing) and encourages the production of saliva from the horse, which in turn would lead to the horse accepting the bit. Sweet iron bits will oxidise within the horse's mouth, experts believe this can lead to the horse experiencing a favourable flavour or taste in its mouth; hence the name sweet iron bits.

At Online for Equine we supply a large selection of sweet iron bits for you and your horse, coming in a number of different styles and variations, including loose ring snaffle bits. It is important to know that as the sweet iron bit rusts, it could add a slight orange tint to your horse's saliva. If you would like to know more about sweet iron bits, or have any questions or concerns about any of the horse bits we offer, please do not hesitate to call up and speak to our bitting expert, who will be more than happy to help.
