This classic snaffle bit has been the top choice of trainers and riders through the ages. The combination of the slightly weighted ring with an average size 7/16" smooth snaffle makes this bit perfectly balanced for training and every day riding. The weight of the ring increases feel for both the horse and rider which gives the horse pre-signals to rein cues and provides clear communication. Sweet iron naturally rusts into a light patina. The rust creates a sweet taste for the horse and makes the bit more acceptable and increases salivation for a supple mouth.
