We love this bit because it is just a great standard bit to add to your schooling collection. The large rings move freely but offer help with turning almost as a D-ring would.

The loose ring is a standard jaw piece. This jaw piece has separate rings which allow the bit to move more freely in the mouth so that many horses accept this bit well. To prevent skins from getting between the moving rings, it is advisable to provide the bit with bit rings. Large rings have a more indirect effect than smaller rings. The large rings provide a greater pressure distribution on the cheeks. This makes a horse easier to maneuver and a bit cannot be pulled through the mouth as easily. In addition, slight leverage can be obtained with these large rings.

The french link mouthpiece is a double-jointed mouthpiece with a flat insert that exerts equal pressure on the tongue. This mouthpiece has two pivot points, is shaped more to the mouth, and is a bit looser in the mouth.

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

*Due to the contagious nature of the equine disease EHV 1 and per biosecurity measure guidelines suggested by the American Association of Equine Practitioners, The Farm House will no longer accept returns on bits.
