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.

            Per my current trainer's suggestion, I went looking for a sweet iron full-cheek bit. He is a much happier horse with this bit than the original bit I had been using, as well as with the standard full-cheek snaffle belonging to the trainer that I'd used for a few weeks. After two weeks, I'm very happy with this bit so far.

                Comments about FES Bit Sweet Iron Snaffle 5" Full Cheek:

                Very great bit. It fits my horse very comfortably and the sweet iron keeps her mouth salivating. She responds really well to the full cheek with turning, and stops well. I also love the snaffle; it absolutely does not pinch at all.

                What bits are made of...

                If you have any questions about this product or a type of bit, please contact us at 1-800-365-1311 or service@sstack.com
                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.
