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 3/8? 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, giving the horse pre-signals to rein cues and providing clearer communication. Sweet iron naturally rusts into a light patina. The rust creates sweet taste for the horse, making the bit more acceptable and increasing salivation for a supple mouth.
