5” Cheeks • 5 1/2” Mouth • 3/8” Twisted Sweet Iron Dog Bone Snaffle
The shorter shank and slight gag make this Tender Touch bit perfect as a transition or intermediary bit. It can also be used in competitive events providing the horse a balanced and responsive to the riders cues. Adjust to a neutral position of one wrinkle, two fingers between the curb and chin. This bit is designed to apply pressure at the corners of the lip, across the tongue, on the bars, and at the curb. The mouthpiece is made of sweet iron which will naturally rust 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.
Stage B is all about transition, with the introduction of leverage and curb pressure. Short Shanked bits and Half-Gags comprise Stage B.
