The Bombers Flexible Mullen Full Cheek Snaffle has a mouthpiece made from an internal stainless steel chain covered with a non-toxic, UV resistant PVC tube. This bit offers exceptionally soft and evenly distributed pressure over the tongue and bars.
This mouthpiece is often suitable for horses that object to metal bits.
The full cheeks ensure that the bit remains central and stable in the horse's mouth, and therefore can be useful for horses that are unsure of the bit, as the lack of movement can encourage them to take the contact forward. The full cheeks also help to prevent pinching at the sides of the mouth.
The arms of the full cheeks assist with steering, as pressure is applied to the cheek when a turning aid is given. This can be useful for young horses, or schooling and training purposes.
The delicate nature of the outer material can mean that if chewed by the horse it may result in damage to the mouthpiece.
Available in 13.5cm, 14cm or 14.5cm.
