The Fulmer snaffle is a loose ring variation of the full cheek bit. The rings allow for more movement in the horse’s mouth, which is ideal for horses that need the support of a full cheek but also have a tendency to lean or fix on the bit.
This bit can be used with keepers on the bridle to help keep the cheeks in position.
The side shanks assist with steering and applies pressure across the lips and bars of the mouth.
The elliptical joint is an oval shaped link in the center of the mouthpiece, which is movable and rolls around the stainless steel center. The two joints allow the pressure of the bit is distributed over both the tongue and bars of the mouth and it shouldn’t cause any interference with the roof of the mouth. The link uses tongue pressure to encourage the horse to go on the bit and lower the head.
