        Comments about FES Jointed Training Snaffle:

        I moved down to this bit for Western Pleasure on my 9 year old horse. Bends all the way in 1/2, makes it comfy for my horse and won't pinch. Nice bit my horse loves. Not much bling for the show ring tho. Ended up buying two bits so I could keep one for practice bridle and one for show bridle.

        If I find a bit the horse likes I use it on him for everything. Why change?

          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.
