Choosing the Best Rubber Snaffle Bits

Rubber snaffle bits for horses are a great bit option if your horse tends to be sensitive in their mouth or is not used to wearing a bit. With the soft rubber covering the metal mouthpiece, the pressure applied to the bars of a horse’s mouth is greatly reduced due to the cushion effect of a rubber snaffle.

Another popular style of rubber bits are Happy Mouth bits which use a proprietary plastic material to coat the mouthpieces of their bits with a fun apple flavor horses enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions About Rubber Snaffles

What is a rubber snaffle bit used for?

Rubber snaffle bits are often used for horses with sensitive mouths or on young horses learning to accept a bit. The rubber coating on the mouthpiece allows a rider to communicate without hurting the bars of a horse’s mouth.

Are rubber bits soft?

Rubber bits can be made with either soft rubber or a harder rubber depending on the brand and design of the rubber bit. Some rubber horse bits are actually made with a hard plastic coating to resemble a rubber bit, without being as delicate. This can be beneficial for a horse that chews on its bit.

How to choose between a rubber bit and a metal bit?

Choosing between a rubber bit and a metal bit comes down to the level of sensitivity your horse has with wearing a bit, and your preference on what you are trying to achieve. If your horse has a sensitive mouth or is not used to wearing a bit, using a rubber bit or rubber snaffle can be a good option to encourage them to accept the bit. If your horse chews heavily on their bit, using a metal bit might be a better choice so that they don’t wear through or create rough edges on rubber or plastic-coated bit.

Are rubber bits good for horses with sensitive mouths?

Rubber bits are a good option for horses that have sensitive mouths as they offer more protection on the sensitive bars of a horse’s mouth when the rider pulls on the reins or applies pressure. Rubber snaffle bits come in various mouthpiece styles which can make it easier to find the perfect match for your horse.
