Happy Tongue, Blue Steel Bit
The snaffle bit creates direct 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 horse's mouth, which encourages further softening and mouthing.
The Happy Tongue is perfect for young horses starting out, improving bit contact and acceptance. The mouth is solid with a definite curve to give tongue relief. This will relieve actions like head shaking, sticking the tongue out an trying to put the tongue over the bit. Training improvements like going behind the bit, snatching the reins forward and down can also be improved.
