About Twisted Wire Snaffle Bits

Twisted wire snaffle bits are designed for horses that require a little extra control and immediate response from horses that can be strong or heavy in the mouth, as they put increased pressure on the tongue and corners of the mouth.

Twisted wire bits come with different types of mouthpieces such as single or double-jointed, single twist, and slow twist or square twist snaffles, and are made from stainless steel, sweet iron, and copper. Whether you are looking for a training bit to lighten your horse through the mouth or have a twisted snaffle bit to better control a strong horse, you can find the right fit with brands used by top riders.

Frequently Asked Questions About Twisted Wire Bits

What are twisted wire horse bits for?

Twisted wire horse bits are used in both Western and English riding to encourage an immediate response from the horse when pressure is applied to their tongue and corners of the mouth, especially for horses that tend to be heavy in the bridle and pull.

What does a double twisted wire bit do?

A double twisted wire bit increases the reaction time from a horse that may be hard-mouthed or hang in the bridle. When a single twist bit is not quite enough to get a response, a double twisted wire bit can offer that step-up in intensity for a strong horse.

Is a twisted wire horse bit harsh?

A twisted wire snaffle bit is only as harsh as the rider allows it to be. When twisted wire bits are used incorrectly or by an inexperienced or hard-handed rider, like any bit, they can cause unnecessary amounts of pressure on the horse’s mouth. The twisted wire bit is designed to get an immediate response from the horse with very little pressure on the reins.
