Snaffle Gavin Cocker
The Snaffle Gavin Cocker difference linking system in the middle to a standard Snaffle.
The Snaffle Gavin Cocker creates a pressure point on the tongue due to the link concentrating pressure on a small surface area, however it is less pressure than a standard Snaffle as the surface area is larger than the normal rings. Pressure descends onto the bars and due to the mouthpiece being a single break, it will create a squeeze on the bars – this squeeze on the bars is more than the squeeze created by a double jointed mouthpiece. The Snaffle Gavin Cocker is curved to soften bar pressure and squeeze on the bars, by spreading pressure over a larger surface area. The Sweet Iron material was chosen as a metal option as it oxidizes. Oxidization encourages salivation and acceptance of the mouthpiece. The single break, Snaffle, is a broken mouthpiece and will take the shape of the horses mouth.
