This Shires Brass Alloy Waterford Dutch Gag combines the actions of a Waterford multilink mouthpiece with the lever action of the Dutch Gag cheek to give a very strong action to this bit. The Waterford mouthpiece is made in Brass Alloy that is a combination of copper and a harder metal to create a durable, warm metal that can help encourage salvation. As the Waterford mouthpiece is made of many links it makes it difficult for the horse to take hold or lean on the bit. The dutch gag/continental cheeks act as a lever bit to give a downward action after a small initial lift on the poll, lips, bars and tongue, lowering head carriage, the lower the ring the more severe the action. It is recommended that this type of cheek is used either with double reins or Pelham roundings when using the lower rein holes. This bit is most likely to be used for cross country or hunting.
This bit can be severe and is recommended to be used under the supervision of or by an experienced rider.
