Full Cheek Bits
Full Cheek bits are a fixed cheek bit, this may be useful for horses that are a bit unsure of the bit as it doesnt move around to much in the mouth, it should encourage the horse to stretch into the contact. A fixed bit would be less suitable if your horse is prone to leaning or taking hold of the bit
Full cheek bits are very useful for breaking in, or bringing on of young horses, as they help tremendously with the turning aids, and help to teach the horse to turn, the full cheek bit does not slide through the mouth as would a normal snaffle would if your horse doesnt like to turn. The bit is particularly useful for horses that nap, as the bit will help if the horse suddenly makes a dash for the gate or for the nosey horses who spend half their time looking at what they are missing whilst being in the paddock, The full cheek bit works by applying pressure to the cheek when an turning aid is asked. The full cheek bits can be used with or without fulmer loops/keepers, although many would say that the keepers keep the bit in the correct place, they also add poll pressure, so if you dont need any poll pressure then, it wouldnt be useful to use the keepers. But please be aware that the full cheek bits used particularly with young children, can be dangerous in some circumstances and if you horse rubs their head you may find that the cheek is hooked somewhere! A safer alternative for younger children is the full spoon bits as the cheek piece is less pointy and not as long.
Jointed Mouthing bit with players
The mouthing bit with players is the traditional breaking in bit, normally a rubber type bit is introduced first and then a mouthing bit would be replaced, the jointed mouthing bit has 2 joints, which means the pressure of the bit is distributed over both the tongue and bars of the mouth. Because the mouthpiece has two joints, it shouldnt cause any interference with the roof of the mouth. The players, which are attached to the centerpiece, provide the young horse with something to play with, encouraging mouthing and are more fun for the horse than just a plain mouthpiece-encouraging acceptance of the bit.
