    Comments about FES Bit 3 Piece Stainless Steel Mouth 6" Cheek:

    I purchased this bit to use on my gelding while ponying my mare, and to use as a transitional bit for my mare when she is ready to move to a shanked bit from a simple ring snaffle. The center piece of the mouth piece (dog bone) could be a tad wider--seems to be smaller than what's pictured online. All in all a very nice 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 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.
