Why choose a full cheek snaffle for your horse?
Full cheek, brass alloy snaffles are useful for green horses or young horses as they can help with steering. The cheeks on the bit create a positive action against the horse's cheeks when asked to turn. The full cheek design also prevents the bit being dragged through the horse’s mouth.
Brass alloy is formed when copper is alloyed with a harder metal, this produces a warm and durable material which is perfect for horse bits as it can aid salivation and be more palatable to the horse. The central lozenge encourages a softer contact, reducing the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit which is ideal for young or sensitive horses. Distributes pressure evenly across the tongue and bars of the mouth for a smooth performance.
