We love the Trust Sweet Iron Pony Jointed Full Cheek Bit because the sweet iron promotes salvation by relaxing the jaw. The full cheek adds lateral pressure on the horse's mouth aiding in turning.
The TRUST Pony Collection is an anatomically shaped bit with a perfect fit for a pony’s mouth. In collaboration with pony riders, TRUST equestrian developed the pony series with new sizes, thinner mouthpieces, and smaller cheekpieces. The bits are made in sizes 9.5, 10.5, and 11.5.
The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron will rust when it comes into contact with (air) humidity, the surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates 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 (oxidation) 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.
*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.
**No warranty or service is valid when delivered outside of European Union.
