2952 Happy Mouth Jointed Beval Loop Ring
The loose rings snaffles make a more mobile bit than an eggbutt or
fixed cheek bit, which should encourage your horse to keep a relaxed jaw
and mouth the bit. The loose ring may be useful if your horse leans on
the bit, or takes hold, as the bit is always movable so the horse cannot
take hold as easily as they could with a fixed cheek. This bit is also
useful for gaining contact as the movable mouthpiece enables the bit to
fit the mouth, contour the tongues natural position and sit comfortably.
Single Jointed Bits
The single joint puts pressure on the sides of the tongue, on the lips
and on the bars due to the nutcracker. The single jointed bits also may
have a head raising action so would be less suitable for your horse if
they ride with a high head carriage or above the bit. Also breeds such
as Irish Draughts, may have particularly large tongues, therefore having
less room in the mouth for a single jointed bit as this pushes the bit
nearer the roof of the mouth, also Arabs and alike may have a low
palate, both of these examples may not benefit from the single jointed
bits as the nutcracker action may cause brushing of the roof of the
The History of the happy mouth bit
The Description on the Happy Mouth Bit by E Jeffries is as follows:
1. As everybody knows, most horses dislike having the bit forced into
the mouth, particularly metal and stainless steel bits which are cold
and hard and not welcoming, therefore horses often show a great deal of
resistance. From this we recognized that there was a potential demand
for a bit that was both COMFORTABLE and PLEASURABLE for the horse, and
which any horse would instantly accept.
2. All horses have very different characters and breeding, therefore a
bit has to be suitable for all types. It is important for bit to vary in
shape, in thickness and in hardness, in order to adapt to any horse,
regardless of breed age or temperament.
3. Due to advance technology modern scientists have developed an
“Engineering or “SPACE AGE plastic, to be used in a variety of
industries. We have chosen the most DURABLE, NON TOXIC, FLEXIBLE, and
LONG LASTING polyurethane plastic for our HAPPY MOUTH BIT, which proves a
nice, SOFT, GENTLE touch to the horses mouth.
4. One unique characteristic of this revolutionary bit is the apple
flavour, which has been added to the plasic; as we have discovered many
horses instantly recognise this flavour, and hence readily accept the
bit without resistance.
This has been illustrated in various countries over the last 10 years
by an increase in the usage of the HAPPY MOUTH BIT, proving the
overwhelming success of the idea.
5. Consequently, the increase in demand for the HAPPY MOUTH BIT is
evidence enough that it has become widely accepted by both the customer
and more importantly the horse which translates to us as complete
satisfaction. A happy horse is one that uses the HAPPY MOUTH BIT.
Instructions For Use
This product has a flexible mouth, which by its very nature, is more easily damaged than metal.
It is most important that the bit is of the correct size and that it lies central in the horses mouth.
Teeth marks on the bit may indicate that the horses mouth is in need of
attention. All bits should be checked on a regular basis and on no
account should a damaged bit be allowed to continue in use.
