The locking centre joint and curved mouthpiece of the Lock Up Snaffle from Bombers Bits are designed to remove the nutcracker action of a conventional single-jointed snaffle, so this bit will bear less pressure on the bars of the horse's mouth. The mouthpiece cannot bend beyond a certain point, so it remains in a curve in the mouth, rather than forming a V-shape that could rub the top of the horse's palate.
The loose ring makes the bit mobile in the horse's mouth, encouraging him to gently mouth the bit. It also allows for an immediate release of the rein aids, releasing pressure on the tongue and bars straight away when the horse responds to commands.
The blue sweet iron mouthpiece oxidises easily, warms up quickly and tastes sweet in the horse's mouth, which encourages the horse to salivate and accept the bit without resistance.
Please note that the blue will fade with use.
Available in 12.5cm, 13.5cm, 14cm, 14.5cm or 15mm. 14mm diameter mouthpiece.
