#223 – Stage A
⅜” Twisted Dogbone Snaffle
5″ Mouth 3″ Rings
Mouthpiece has three features to help control your horse. First, it’s twisted to add some bite. Second, the three-piece breaks over the bar at a different angle to contact new nerves. And third, the dogbone contacts the tongue for pressure to help rate and set a horse’s head. Sweet iron naturally rusts into a light patina. The rust creates a sweet taste for the horse and makes the bit more acceptable and increases salivation for a supple mouth. Mullen relief is used on all our snaffle mouthpieces which is a forward curve that creates even pressure across the bars and tongue to eliminate the nutcracker effect.
Are You Riding with Both Hands? Stage A bits are great for starting horses, training, or maintaining steady contact. Aspects include direct reining, non-leverage Loose Rings and Dee Rings with mouthpiece diameters 5/16” and over.
