We love the Trust Sweet Iron Slow Twist Full Cheek Jointed Snaffle Bit Sweet Iron bit because a full cheek is stable and quiet in the mouth, ideal for training young horses. The sweet iron mouth is made of blue steel and releases a sweet-tasting surface that will mildly rust through when it comes in contact with saliva. This encourages the horse to accept the bit, and the double joint has a gentle nutcracker effect on the bars and tongue of the horse making this an ideal bit for young horses. 

The rust can easily be removed with a  damp cloth. 
Sweet Iron

  • Sweet Iron bits are made of blue steel and release a sweet-tasting surface rust through contact with saliva, which stimulates the horse's saliva production in a natural way. This sweet surface rust will cause the horse to foam more and accept the bit better.
  • When a Sweet Iron bit is temporarily not used, an orange-brown rust layer can form on the mouthpiece. This can be easily removed by wiping the bit with a damp cloth.

Full cheek:

  • The side pieces of a full cheek have 2 bars on the side and therefore cannot be pulled through the mouth.
  • These bars create more pressure on the horse's cheeks, which makes maneuverability easier.
  • A full cheek is stable and quiet in the mouth, ideal for training young horses.
  • Depending on the type, thickness and material, a full cheek is given a sharper or softer effect.

Full Cheek Loops:

  • To make a full cheek even more effective, a full cheek loop can be attached to the cheek piece of the bridle on either side of the bit.
  • The end of the top bar is pushed through this.
  • Leverage is created by using these loops.
  • Prevents the bars from getting caught under the noseband of the bridle.

Double Jointed, Elliptical

  • The double Jointed mouthpiece consists of 3 parts.
  • The middle part of this mouthpiece lies flat on the tongue and will put more pressure on the tongue than a single jointed mouthpiece.
  • The thicker the middle part, the more pressure on the tongue.

**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 any returns on bits and bit accessories.**
