Ultra® Bit Cleaner and Freshener

$14.99
Recommened for horses that are heavy on the hands in a snaffle but not ready to move up to a curb bit. This is also a great training bit for everyday use.

Snaffles apply direct pressure meaning the amount of pressure you apply to the bit is the amount of pressure the horse will feel.  Pressure is applied directly to the tongue and jaw when both reins are pulled or on the side of the face when using one rein at a time. Snaffles apply and release pressure much faster than a curb bit but does not apply as much total pressure making snaffles a wonderful training bit.

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.
