    Very nice bit that adds some poll pressure without resorting to curb pressure for that little added control

      Ideal bit for my hunter over fences horse to use for the hunter hack, soft but still gives leverage for the under saddle classes!

        Comments about FES Curved Smooth Snaffle Dee with hooks:

        This bit is a great show alternative to a kimberwicke. My horse works well in this bit. I only use it for shows and ride her in a snaffle for training. It is similar to other brands, but much cheaper! I added a chain and hooks to give it more leverage and it seems to be just as efficient as a kimberwicke. I have an APHA mare and this bit works well for Hunter Under Saddle classes. The classic Dee ring looks nice in the show ring!

        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.
