Snaffle with Elliptical Link 16mm
The snaffle bit creates direct pressure without leverage on the mouth.
The mouthpiece of the bit acts on the tongue and bars of the mouth (severity depends on the style) and the sides of the jawbone.
The loose rings allow the bit to move around within the horses mouth, which encourages further softening and mouthing.
When the rein aids are relaxed it allows the loose ring to distribute immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure, as the bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse's mouth thus rewarding a correct response.
