Loose Ring Ported Snaffle
The Loose Ring - The loose rings snaffles make a more mobile bit than an eggbutt or fixed cheek bit, which should encourage your horse to keep a relaxed jaw and mouth the bit. The loose ring may be useful if your horse leans on the bit, or takes hold, as the bit is always movable so the horse cannot take hold as easily as they could with a fixed cheek. This bit is also useful for gaining contact as the movable mouthpiece enables the bit to fit the mouth, contour the tongues natural position and sit comfortably.
Two different ring sizes influence the placing of the bit. The smaller the rings, the more direct and stronger is the influence on the horse's mouth. The rings move effortlessly through copper sleeves, which improve the durability of the bit tremendously.
Bit rings make sure that pinching isn't possible.
The Ported Mouthpiece - This bit can be placed perfectly in the horse's mouth. The horse's tongue gets enough space because of the flattened area on the port. Many horses react to this with more relaxation and chewing. Therefore this bit is perfect for horses that won't tolerate pressure on the tongue and react with head shaking and such.
At the same time this bit is a good choice for horses that like to play with their tongue and get it over the bit. The port will help to prevent that by removing centre tongue pressure. With its 30mm height, it's unfortunately not dressage legal under FEI and BD rules.
