Portuguese Elliptical Gag
This bit is made of stainless steel, therefore designed never to rust, bend or break. The bit is in effect an elliptical link loose ring snaffle with 2 extra rings on the bit rings. With the cheekpiece attached to the top ring and the rein on the bottom ring, this gag becomes a midway between a regular elliptical link snaffle and a regular gag. The mouthpiece has loose rings and a central rounded, egg shaped link. The mouthpiece evolved from the French snaffle and as a result has a very similar action. Most horses readily accept this bit and are more comfortable in their mouths. There is no nutcracker action due to the central link, creating a continuous feel from one side to the other.
Sizes: 4.5′, 5′, 5.5′ and 6′.
