Horses accept leather bits very well. Leather is a purely natural product, it promotes chewing and also the flow of saliva. The bit slides easily in the mouth thereby increasing well being. The processed leather has been vegetable-tanned and hand stitched. When moistened, the anatomically pre-shaped bit adjusts perfectly to the anatomy of the horse"s mouth. Our leather mouthpiece is particularly well suited to young and highly sensitive horses. Even horses that generally dislike bits in their mouth mostly like a leather bit and can re-learn a trusting acceptance of the bit. The loose ring means that the bit is more mobile in the mouth. The loose ring snaffle is therefore a bit for horses who prefer a more mobile bit. The ring runs very smoothly in the copper sockets, and the resulting better durability increases the service life of the bit. In selecting the bit, one can also address the horse"s requirements.

Before first use, the mouthpiece should be softened for a few hours in cooking oil. Repeat this procedure as soon as you notice that the leather seems dry. Before every use it should be soaked briefly in clear water and, after use, cleaned thoroughly as saliva can degrade the leather.
