HKM  Argentan Full Cheek – 16mm


Full

Cheek bits are a fixed cheek bit, this may be useful for horses that
are a bit unsure of the bit as it doesn’t 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 doesn’t 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 don’t need any poll pressure then, it wouldn’t
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 your horse rubs
their head you may find that the cheek is hooked somewhere! They
should be supervised whilst being used
A safer alternative for younger children is the full spoon bits as the cheek piece is less pointy and not as long.
