Informed Designs Shaped Loose Ring Snaffle/Bradoon w/ Lozenge
This bit works easily as a snaffle bit or a bradoon; rings are slightly smaller than typical snaffle loose ring bit.
The mouth piece is 12mm thick which creates a light and slender mouthpiece to compliment the conformation of the horse’s mouth. Both branches of the mouthpiece are curved forward to follow the line of the tongue. The lozenge is the same diameter as the mouthpiece creating an even wraparound inside the mouth. The advantage to a loose ring cheek is that because the mouthpiece runs loose on the cheek the horse can move the bit pressure off the tongue more easily and the signals that the rider gives have a slight delay before the mouthpiece activates. This premium, stainless steel bit is currently in stock in the sizes shown above.
***This bit comes with the lozenge positioned 2 ways: flat across the tongue ("flat") turned lozenge ("round")
