Cottage Craft French Link Snaffle Bit£17.99
The Cottage Craft French Link Snaffle Bit is the ideal bit choice for horses that are uncomfortable in a standard jointed snaffle. This loose ring snaffle features a French link in the centre of the mouthpiece which alleviates the regular nutcracker action that a single- jointed mouthpiece has and therefore, this bit is far milder on the horses mouth making it ideal for younger horses, sensitive horses or horses that have a novice rider on board.
The French link reduces palate pressure making it far more comfortable on the bars of the horse's mouth. The French link lies flat on the horse's tongue and therefore is very mild. This snaffle is often a favourite choice for dressage as it promotes relaxation. It is currently dressage legal, but please check this against the British Dressage rulebook.
The loose ring of this Dever snaffle bit promotes self carriage as it decreases the horse's ability to lean on the bit. As the horse's ability to lean is reduced, this horse bit enhances feel and communication between the rider's hand and the horse's mouth.

Neue Schule Tranz Angled Lozenge Jumper's Choice - 8023RD£129.54
The Neue Schule Tranz Angled Lozenge Jumper's Choice/Ride & Drive is a lever bit which offers extra lift from the shoulder and increases control without discomfort or severity. This clever cheek also reinforces directional control and turning, and stabilises the mouthpiece ensuring the correct contact points are employed at all times when rein aids are applied. The NS Tranz Angled mouthpiece is ergonomically designed for both comfort and communication. The rounded lozenge is set on at a unique 20° angle, activating more feel over the tongue. When a contact is taken, the lozenge rolls gently down contouring smoothly over the tongue's thicker less sensitive centre (the sweet spot), utilising feel but not abusing it, thereby enabling clearly defined aids to be given through the reins. The arms are slightly curved for comfort and of an oval profile. This clever design takes up less room between the tongue and upper palate whilst offering a similar weight bearing surface from the horse's perspective as thicker, more obtrusive circular profile mouthpieces. This ergonomic design very subtly depresses the whole of the tongue and the oval profiles help to create a larger upper airway, enhancing the horse's ability to breathe and swallow.
This bit is very popular with jumpers as it encourages the horse to sit on it's hocks, helping with tight, accurate turns. It's also recommended for horses which snatch down or pull the rider forwards. The inner rings act as a softening buffer through the rein so that riders with weak backs or arthritis will usually find this bit to be a great benefit. This bit is also a great choice for a driving bit when a Liverpool is not compulsory. It's one of the few designs of bit to provide extra directional control without having fixed cheeks.
Available from 5" - 6"; 16mm mouthpiece thickness

Neue Schule Demi-Anky Universal - 8012U/8013U£129.54
The Neue Schule Demi-Anky Universal is ergonomically designed to eradicate the nutcracker action and consequent evasions often caused by the traditional, straight-armed single-jointed snaffle. It offers control without discomfort or severity, and is ideal for faster work and jumping as it allows the rider to turn and direct the horse more easily.
The cleverly curved mouthpiece of this bit eliminates interference with the upper palate and prevents the bit from lying too far forwards in the mouth. Traditional jointed bits can pinch the sensitive outer edges of the tongue as they travel forwards in the mouth but the Neue Schule Demi-Anky Universal has been redesigned to ensure that the bit sits correctly, further back in the mouth over the less sensitive area of the tongue. The ergonomic design of this mouthpiece sweeps away from the corner of the lips reducing the risk of rubbing, while offering a superb weight-bearing surface across the bars. Once the horse establishes a correct contact, the bit shape forms a long low shape over the tongue providing relief to the sensitive outer edges.
The Neue Schule Demi-Anky Universal features a uniquely designed gag cheek based on a traditional three ring gag. In a traditional three ring gag, the rings sit parallel to one another; in contrast the Neue Schule Demi-Anky Universal features an angled main ring which sweeps away from the face to prevent the cheek from becoming compressed against the teeth.
The cheek is very well balanced and allows for multiple rein combinations. The cheek can be used with single or double reins and can also be used with Pelham rounding. If the bit does not provide adequate control, a curb strap can be employed from the top ring of the cheek to reinforce turning and control without restricting the horses ability to stretch on his way into a fence.
Available from 5" - 6"; mouthpiece thickness either 16mm or 18mm
NS Reference 8012U (16mm mouthpiece) or 8013U (18mm mouthpiece)

Great for horses who are prone to resisting, coming above the bit or strung out, the Tranz Angled Lozenge Baucher encourages the horse to lower its head while giving the rider a softer feel through the rein. This design also often proves beneficial for the over-sensitive mouth, and is highly-recommended where help is needed for straightness and directional control.
