We love this Trust Sweet Iron Loose Ring Gag Waterford, in soft hands this mouthpiece is friend but if need-be with a strong hand the bit can be sharp.
The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron will rust when it comes into contact with humidity, the surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates the saliva production. This will cause the horse to salivate more, which in turn will encourage a better acceptance of the bit. The process of rusting changes the blue color of the TRUST bits to a brownish-grey. This is the desired effect of the Sweet Iron bits.
If a Sweet Iron bit is not used for a while, an orange-brown rust layer may form on the mouthpiece. Simply remove this by wiping the bit with a damp cloth.
A waterford mouthpiece consists of a series of rounded links. It is a flexible bit that forms towards the horse’s mouth and creates an even pressure. It can move in all directions making it difficult for the horse to lean on the bit so that the rider retains proper control. This bit is not suitable for inexperienced riders.
