Lozenge snaffles work independently on each side of the mouth. With various lozenge snaffle mouthpiece options such as an oval link, dog bone, or french link, you can choose a specific shape lozenge that works best for your horse.

There are different nickel-free alloy materials to choose from for a lozenge snaffle that can help promote salivation, which in turn can encourage a horse to accept the bit and relax through the jaw. These snaffle bits with a lozenge can be made from sweet copper or Sensogan, which is a mix of copper, manganese, and zinc, designed to have a distinct taste horses really enjoy.
