The links allow the mouth piece to wrap over the tongue, the links are stronger than the Waterford due to the reduced surface area. This versatile bit can be flipped and used either way with the teeth edge providing a sharper mouth piece while the smoother curved edge creates a more forgiving and softer bit. Great bit for the experienced rider.
The Reversible Link creates pressure across the tongue and bars. This mouthpiece is slightly stronger than the Waterford as the links cover a smaller surface area than the Waterford links. Due to several links, this mouthpiece is flexible and will wrap around the horses mouth. Pressure descends onto the bars and due to the mouthpiece being a broken mouthpiece, it will create a squeeze on the bars – however this squeeze on the bars is less than the squeeze created by a single jointed mouthpiece. This mouthpiece can be flipped and used the opposite way, the bit becomes stronger and sharper as the teeth create pressure points on small surface areas. The Sweet Iron material was chosen as a metal option as it oxidizes. Oxidization encourages salivation and acceptance of the mouthpiece. The flexible, Reversible Link, is a broken mouthpiece and will take the shape of the horses mouth.
