Frequently Asked Questions About The O-Ring Snaffle Bit

What is an O-ring snaffle bit?

An O-Ring Snaffle Bit is a gentle bit, typically has a straight bar or jointed mouthpiece with two metal rings on either side. These rings slide through the metal holes in the mouthpiece. This sliding can sometimes cause pinching so this bit is often worn with a bit guard to prevent irritating the corners of the horse's mouth.

What are O-ring snaffle bits used for?

The O-Ring Snaffle Bit is a common bit and can be used in many disciplines. They are allowed in nearly every show ring and are a great bit for obedient horses. If you are looking for an all-purpose bit that you can use for almost anything the O-Ring Snaffle Bit is a great choice.

What is the difference between an O-ring and D-ring snaffle bit?

The O-Ring Snaffle Bit and the D-Ring Snaffle Bit are very different. The O-Ring style has rings on either side of the mouthpiece that slide, while the D-ring has stationary metal pieces in the shape of a “D” on either side of the mouthpiece. The D-ring snaffle gives the rider more lateral control over the horse, while the O-Ring snaffle does not give as much lateral control. However, both styles are very common and very gentle bits.
