      Comments about FES Cathedral Mouth Bit with Dots:

      Unique looking bit, old-fashioned style. Black steel with silver looks great when it arrives, but keep it clean and store in a dry place if you don't want it to rust. The mouthpiece is great for lightening and finishing advanced pleasure horses, not for an inexperienced horse uncomfortable with a leverage bit and solid mouthpiece. Decent weight to the bit. A little narrow for a very large/wide head, but I was able to have my husband bend the purchase out a little to accommodate my horse. Works great as is for a smaller framed horse.

            Great bit at an even better price! This is a strong bit to be used (in my opinion) on a more finished horse by a more experienced rider. The bit is beautifully made and the shipping was super fast!

            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.
