This Nathe snaffle bit has a port to adapt to the horse's tongue anatomy perfectly, allowing space for the tongue and creating even pressure across the horse's mouth.
The nathe mouthpiece has been designed for horses with sensitive, fussy or very light mouths. It can also be beneficial for young horses, or to encourage a more sensitive feel when riding.
The nathe material is extremely gentle to the horse's mouth and tongue, and helps to activate salivation and softening to the contact. Not to be confused with cheaper, plastic mouthpieces, Nathe is soft and flexible, but not as bulky as rubber.
Due to the delicate nature of the Nathe bit, horses have been known to chew through it.
The Nathe Loose Ring Ported Snaffle is available in 13.5cm (5 1/4in) or 14.5cm (5 3/4in). Mouthpiece 2cm thick, rings 7cm.
