D-Ring Snaffle Bits for Horses

D-ring snaffle bits are some of the most popular styles of bits for English riders. There’s even a Western D-Ring Snaffle style that’s often used for Hunter Under Saddle riders on the Western circuit. The D-Ring Snaffle gets its name from the “D” shaped cheek piece that has a hinged cheek connecting to the mouthpiece. This allows more lateral control when turning and steering without being harsh. D-Ring Snaffles can come with a variety of mouthpiece styles making them a great choice for many riders.

Frequently Asked Questions About D-Ring Snaffle Bits

What are D-Ring Snaffle bits used for?

The D-Ring Snaffle bit is used for both English and Western horses as a popular style of bit that can come in a wide variety of mouthpieces. The cheek pieces are in the shape of the letter “D”, with a hinge connecting the mouthpiece to the cheeks. This allows for more lateral control along the sides of your horse’s mouth without pinching the horse’s lips.

What is the difference between a Loose Ring and a D-Ring Snaffle?

The difference between a loose ring snaffle and a D-Ring Snaffle bit is that the D-Ring Snaffle has hinged cheekpieces that form a “D” shape, while a Loose Ring bit is a smooth ring that slides in a full circle through the mouthpiece.

What's the difference between an Eggbutt and D-ring snaffle?

A D-Ring Snaffle bit is different from an Eggbutt Snaffle bit in that it has straighter sides on the cheek piece that sits up against the horse’s mouth, giving the rider more lateral control when steering. Both bits stay stable in the horse’s mouth and can have different types of mouthpiece styles.
