Jointed Stainless steel bit covered with rubber.
The Jointed Rubber Loose Ring Snaffle is a gentler alternative to a usual, thinner stainless steel bit. The thicker mouthpiece is softer on the corners and the bars of the mouth than a thinner bit, as the pressure created by the reins is spread over a larger surface area.
The single joint of this bit works mainly on the tongue, the roof and bars of the mouth. The loose rings allow the horse to move the bit up and down in their mouth with their tongue, and this can help to discourage leaning on the bit.
