The rust creates a sweet taste for the horse and makes the bit more acceptable and increases salivation for a supple mouth. Copper will make the horse salivate to create a soft mouth. The fixed dees apply pressure to the horse’s lip on the opposite side of the face from the rein you pull for better flexion so it’s ideal to ride with two hands and direct rein. It’s great for starting horses, training, or maintaining steady contact.
