      Comments about FES Sweet Iron 3" O-Ring Snaffle:

      I LOVE this bit ! I purchased one for my 2 yr old QH. He has responded beautifully to it. I also love the fact that the bit doesn't "pull" through the sides of his mouth. I have another youngster and one of my friends horses that I am purchasing this bit for as well!
      If this came in a 5.5 inch size, I would purchase for ALL of my horses! That is the only downside. One size.

        The sliding sleeves hold this bit alittle closed so I wouldnt suggest this on a horse with wide cheeks. I wanted it to ride young horses in so it has been working great for that.

        Produce arrived as represented

        Comments about FES Sweet Iron 3" O-Ring Snaffle:

        Shipping was fast and product was as represented. Because the rings do not rotate laterally when the reins are moved laterally.
        The bit itself has a bit of a different feel than the classic ring snaffle that I am accustomed to. This really may be a positive too early to tell. So far I purchased 3 of them and am pleased.

        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.
