Ultra® Bit Cleaner and Freshener

A sweet iron mouth helps the horse to salivate, keeping the mouth moist. Full cheek bits help to lighten the horse up on the bit and be more responsive. Snaffle mouth on full cheeks combine to be a good "starter leverage" bit. To get the best results from your full cheek bit, use "Bit Loops" (#01023 or #15114) to attach the bit the bridle securely, keeping it in the most effective position.

    I'm a really big fan of these inlaid bits. My young horse is a bit of a busy body, and this keeps him from leaning to ease a bored mind and pent up energy.

          Stainless Steel

          Bits are most commonly made of stainless steel. Stainless steel can be cleaned and polished repeatedly without damaging the finish. It is strong, durable, and flavorless and does not impact salivation. Some stainless steel mouths are inlaid with copper.

          Copper

          Copper encourages salivation to increase the sensitivity of the horse’s mouth. It warms up quicker than stainless steel in cold weather.

          Sweet Iron

          Sweet iron is cold-rolled steel. The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet to the horse and increases salivation.  

          Rubber

          Rubber softens the action of the bit as it is softer than traditional metals. Rubber-covered bits are generally thicker than metal.   

          Aluminum

          Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.

          Plastic

          Plastic bits are softer than traditional metal bits and they are durable. Many plastic bits are scented or flavored.

          Nickel Silver

          Nickel silver is a nickel alloy, also known as German silver. It encourages salivation for a more sensitive and supple mouth.
