The Double Jointed D Ring bit is an outstanding choice for quality and performance. This bit was designed so the center link will rest fully on the tongue and eliminate pinching, offering a much better connection between horse and rider. As each side can be used independently, it is a nice bit for young horses at the early levels of training to enhance bending and suppling exercises.

This nicely balanced bit is made using the finest stainless steel for the mouthpiece and rings. The three piece construction applies pressure evenly across the bars of the mouth.

These double-joined D-ring snaffle bits and slow twist bits are from FES and Herm Sprenger. They’re useful for when you need more control over your horse. These types of snaffle bits add more bar pressure and tongue pressure on horses that tend to pull.

Double-Jointed D-Ring Bits

The double-jointed D-ring bit was made so that the center piece rests completely on the tongue, providing improved communication between horse and rider while eliminating pinching. Each side of this bit can be used independently, and this bit is good for younger horses early on in their training to enhance suppling and bending exercises. These stainless steel bits are well-balanced and pressure is applied evenly across the bars.

Twisted Wire and Reverse Spiral Snaffle Bits

Use the twisted wire D-ring bit for added control over more difficult horses. Pressure is applied directly to the bars and tongue. The D-rings have hooks that attach to curb hooks and curb chain, allowing for different leverage options. FES’s D-ring reverse spiral snaffle bit is designed for horses in training as well as seasoned horses. A reverse spiral bit helps you to achieve the correct bend and flex. When needed, it can also get the horse’s attention as well as soften harder mouths.

Slow Twist D-Ring Snaffle Bits

Their slow twist mouthpieces send a strong, clear signal and reduces the amount of pressure you need to apply for your horse to quickly respond. The Cyprium slow twist D-ring snaffle is designed as a training bit that sends clear, strong signals. Cyprium is a material that contains more copper and no nickel, and it promotes salivation. This bit applies pressure directly to the tongue and the bars of the mouth.

Other double-jointed and slow twist bits include the FES Brian Isbell D ring, that offers direct bar and tongue pressure, and the D Ring sweet iron snaffle bit with copper roller, which is great for nervous horses and those who play with the bit. The copper will help them to relax. This type of bit also promotes salivation and improves responsiveness.
