Comments about FES French Link Slow Twist D Ring Snaffle Bit:

Good quality for a difficult to find bit in a D ring. Initially was a little squeaky, but a little vaseline in joint fixed that immediately. Seems well balanced. Tastes neutral or slightly sweet so the horse seemed to accept the bit change quickly.

    Comments about FES French Link Slow Twist D Ring Snaffle Bit:

    This bit was just right for our green TB training for her second career as a hunter/jumper. We normally train in a 3 piece snaffle with lozenge, which keeps her very soft. However, this being her first year showing, she's a little more nervous at shows and therefore a little more horse. This bit provides just Enough 'control'.

          I'd been using a simple egg butt broken snaffle. This is a little more comfortable for this horse and I still get a reaction from her if I need it.
          I'm not crazy about the HUGE D rings but that's the style . . .

          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.
