full description
The Twisted Wire D Ring is professionally designed for superior control. The twisted design puts downward pressure on the tongue, yet still allows the horse to swallow easily. When reins are pulled upward and backward, the mouthpiece rolls downward and backward into the mouth while pulling downward on the poll. This is a nice inbetween bit, when a snaffle is not enough but a correction is too much.

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


Aluminum is lightweight and easy to maintain.


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.
