This classic stainless steel bit features curved bars and double jointed mouthpiece with a rounded oval center link. An oval link in a mouthpiece relieves some of the pressure on the tongue when the rein aids are applied. Because the links is rounded, this mouthpiece is considered slightly milder than a french link. The pressure applied is balanced between the bars, tongue, and lips of your horse making it a versatile option for any horse. By using copper in the center of the mouthpiece, bit acceptance is improved. The taste of copper encourages horses to salivate and keep a moist mouth. Bits made of copper can have a very positive effect by promoting relaxation and softening.
