Trust Sweet Iron-eggbut-jointed-16mm Bus snaffle Ankle joint
A snaffle bit has fixed rings and therefore lies still in the mouth of your horse. Because the rings cannot move independently of each other, your help takes effect immediately.
A single-jointed mouthpiece leaves the horse's tongue more free than a double-jointed mouthpiece. There is more pressure on the layers and on the side of the tongue and has more hinge action.
The sweet iron bits can be recognized by their blue color. This color arises because the material has been heated for a short time. During use, the sweet iron bits develop surface rust through contact with (air) moisture. The sweet taste of this rust stimulates saliva production, so that the bit is better accepted by the horse. This rusting process (oxidation) causes the blue color of the bit to slowly change to brown-grey.
When a sweet-iron bit is not used temporarily, an orange-brown layer of rust can form on the mouthpiece. This can be easily removed by wiping the bit with a damp cloth.
