Comments about FES Heavy Donut Ring Snaffle 3/8":

My horse showed no signs of disliking this bit it was like he had been ridden in it always, will help keep mouth soft & teach rider to use soft hands, he did drop his head when put on, he at times swings head used bit & running martingale he relaxed & rarely tried to swing, it will not pinch,cause sore's on mouth & my reins hung draped without swinging looked more professional

    This is a great bit. The black coating seems to wear off the rings a little though.

    Great training snaffle

    By Ghost and Ashes

    from Pennsylvania

    Verified Buyer

    Comments about FES Heavy Donut Ring Snaffle 3/8":

    The weight is great for mimicking the weight of a show western headstall, also good for a horse who does multiple disciplines, gives a difference in training snaffle depending on the discipline. Only problem is they tend to rust fairly quickly without regular upkeep, but benefits outweigh this.

    It's a heavyweight

    Cons

        Comments about FES Heavy Donut Ring Snaffle 3/8":

        The horse has a nice wet mouth when I remove the bit from the copper inlay. My horsed nearly eliminited the head shaking the second day I used it. I don't plan on using it all the time because it may be to heavy for the horses comfort.
