Sweet Iron

  • Sweet Iron bits are made of blue steel and release a sweet-tasting surface rust through contact with saliva, which stimulates the horse's saliva production in a natural way. This sweet surface rust will cause the horse to foam more and accept the bit better.
  • When a Sweet Iron bit is temporarily not used, an orange-brown rust layer can form on the mouthpiece. This can be easily removed by wiping the bit with a damp cloth.

Loose Ring

  • A loose ring snaffle is a basic bit with loose movable bit rings and is therefore quite loose in the mouth.
  • Depending on the type, thickness and material, a loose ring snaffle gets a sharper or softer effect.
  • It is important that the loose ring is not too narrow, otherwise a skin from the corners of the mouth can get in between.
    If your horse does have problems with this, you can use rubber bit rings if necessary.
  • A loose ring snaffle is a good basic bit, suitable for many horses and riders.

Single Jointed

  • A single jointed bit has a hinge point in the middle that puts pressure on the lips, layers and sides of the tongue. A single jointed bit squeezes the tongue slightly under pressure and puts less pressure on the tongue.
  • A single jointed bit rises slightly in the middle and can sting the palate. In this case is it better to choose a double-jointed or straight mouthpiece.
  • A single jointed bit is a good basic bit, suitable for many horses and riders.

Locked

  • Locked bits resemble a single broken bit, but cannot hinge as much and lock with a lot of rein pressure, turning the bit into a straight bit.
  • A locked bit acts with a lot of rein pressure as a straight bit and with little rein pressure as a single jointed bit.
  • Locked bits are suitable for horses that run through the hand and are not suitable for an inexperienced rider.
