Snaffle Square Twist
Our Snaffle is a popular bit due to the curved mouthpiece which distributes pressure more evenly over tongue and bars. With the offset centre link it will reduce nutcracker action and pressure points on the tongue.
The Square Twist will create more pressure points on the mouthpiece which will make it stronger than the Round Twist and Smooth.
The Snaffle creates a pressure point on the tongue due to the link concentrating pressure on a small surface area, this pressure point is less sharp than a general snaffle as we have designed our snaffle with an offset link, creating a less obvious pressure point. 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 square twist is a stronger specialization than the round twist as the spines are a smaller, sharper surface area. This specialization does apply a great amount of pressure on the tongue and bars as each curve creates an individual pressure point where it lands.
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.
