We love the JP Korsteel Stainless Steel Jointed 3 Ring Dutch Gag because the design of the curved bars prevents the bit from hitting the roof of the horse's mouth and eliminates the nutcracker-like action that can pinch a horse's tongue. This Dutch gag consists of 3 rings: the top one where the cheekpieces attach and then 2 lower rings offering a variety of rein settings depending on how strong the rider needs the curb action to be. These are strong bits, typically used to encourage the horse to be lighter in front.
The unique curved shape of the mouthpiece offers many advantages:
- Eliminates the nutcracker" tongue-pinching action of conventional bits
- Keeps the bit from hitting the roof of the horse's mouth
- No direct pressure on the tongue and bars
- Replaces bit interference with humane comfort
- Encourages relaxation and salivation
- Allows for effective communication between horse and rider
- Fine hand-polished stainless steel
- Excellent for all training and riding needs
Due to the contagious nature of the equine disease EHV 1 and in accordance to biosecurity measure suggested by the American Association of Equine Practitioners we are no longer able to accept returns on bits.
