This bit is made out of stainless steel
The Loop Ring
The Loop ring is similar to the loose ring apart from this bit has 2 extra fixed holes for the cheek piece of the bridle to go through and the other for the rein to attach through, this can be used in a few ways so that the rein can just attach to the normal snaffle ring. If the cheek piece is attached to the top fixed point, then this will increase the lip and poll pressure slightly, if the rein is attached to the fixed rein port then this increases the lip and poll pressure all the more. However the bit is considered to be a mild and is used especially on ponies when the rider needs a little extra help, it Is a very popular show bit.
The French link has proven one of the most popular mouthpieces; it 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 French link uses tongue pressure to encourage the horse to go on the bit and has bar and lip pressure but not a squeezing action like that of a bit with a single joint. The more joints a bit has the less likely the horse is to lean as the bit becomes more mobile.
This Bit is not suitable for equitation and is not Dressage legal.
