FES Dr. Bristol D Ring Snaffle Bit
This bit has a center link that applies a little more leverage to achieve greater flexion and head position in younger horses or those with sensitive mouths. The center link folds gently across the tongue, lays flat and will not pinch. The double jointed bit has a stainless steel mouth and has larger, 3 3/4" D rings. This bit applies pressure to the tongue and corners of the mouth when reins are engaged.

  • Applies pressure to the tongue when direct rein is applied
  • Adds leverage to achieve flexion and head position
  • Distributes pressure evenly and eliminates the nutcracker effect
  • Traditional 3 3/4" D rings
  • Mouth: 5"
  • Center link: 1 1/2" x 3/4" flat center link
  • Bar diameter: 11mm

What bits are made of
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.
Black Iron The material appears rusty after repeated use. This oxidation tastes sweet tot he horse and increases salivation.
