The snaffle bit is a standard jaw piece. This jawpiece has loose rings that allow the bit to move more freely in the mouth, so many horses accept this bit well. To prevent skins from getting between the moving rings, it is recommended to provide the bit with bit rings. Small rings have a more direct effect of the aids than larger rings. The smaller the rings, the more pressure is transferred to a smaller surface. Nice bit for a stronger horse.
The double-jointed bit has two hinge points, is shaped more towards the mouth and lies a bit looser in the mouth. This bit acts on the tongue, the layers and the corners of the mouth. Be careful with narrow lower jaws, the hinge points can then press on the layers, which can cause wounds. Compared to a single jointed bit, this bit acts more on the tongue. A double jointed mouthpiece is a standard mouthpiece.
The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron develops surface rust through contact with (air) moisture that tastes sweet and stimulates the horse's saliva production in a natural way. This will cause the horse to foam more, which ensures better acceptance of the bit. This rusting process (oxidation) changes the blue color of the TRUST bits to brown-grey.
The bits of TRUST equestrian are traditionally Dutch. All bits are designed, developed and handmade in the Netherlands. A team of technical professionals works on the production every day. The bits are composed with the greatest care and made from the best materials. The quality control and standard are therefore very high. With every design, the balance between shape, material and weight is continuously taken into account. TRUST's bits are slightly curved so that they mold better to the horse's mouth. Due to this anatomical shape, the bit lies better in the mouth and the pressure is better distributed. Due to the wide choice of mouthpieces, jaw pieces and materials, TRUST strives to have a suitable bit for every horse.
