A curb gag is similar to a gag but has a different effect. The pressure will now not be behind the ears but on the lower jaw/chin. The cord runs under the chin and the cheekpieces are attached to the extra ring at the top. This bit is effective for strong, hot horses and is mainly used by show jumpers. This bit is not suitable for inexperienced riders. 

The double-broken bit has two pivot points, is shaped more to the mouth, and is a bit looser in the mouth. This bit works on the tongue, the layers, and the corners of the mouth. Be careful with narrow lower jaws, the hinge points can then press on the layers, which can cause wounds. Compared to a single broken bit, this bit has more effect on the tongue. A double-jointed mouthpiece is a standard mouthpiece. 

The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron develops surface corrosion through contact with (air) moisture that tastes sweet and stimulates the horse's saliva production naturally. This will cause the horse to foam more, which ensures better acceptance of the bit. This corroding process (oxidation) changes the blue color of the TRUST bits to brown-gray.
