The loose ring snaffle bit helps to improve a horse’s body suppleness while teaching lateral movement. It achieves this by increasing bit movement, putting pressure on the tongue and bars. We have O-ring snaffle bits from FES, Professional’s Choice® and Myler. Choose from various styles, such as weighted O-ring copper twisted wire, sweet iron, ported barrel, 3-piece twist snaffle, iron dog bone, comfort snaffle and copper slow twist mouth.

FES Sweet Iron and Slow Twisted Snaffle Bits

FES offers sweet iron snaffle bits and twisted wire snaffle bits. There’s a single jointed snaffle with weighted rings that teaches horses to hold the bit and to break at the poll. The sweet iron softens the mouth and promotes salivation. Their 3-inch stainless steel snaffle has a sweet iron mouthpiece with copper inlay and sliding sleeves that prevent pinching. It’s ideal for younger horses or those with a softer mouth. There are also 7/16-inch snaffle bits that help establish balance and bending. These have stainless steel free-moving O-rings and a sweet iron mouthpiece.

FES’s twisted wire snaffle bit combines smoothness and twisted wire, teaching horses to hold the bit and break at the poll. The smooth portion prevents rubbing and pinching at the corners of the mouth. The twisted part keeps the tongue responsive and sensitive. Sweet iron rusts over time, producing a sweet taste to promote salivation and help to soften the mouth. Other models that feature twisted wire include the dog bone and the weighted O-ring copper twisted snaffle bit. The slow twisted wire snaffle provides a thinner mouthpiece to send a clearer, stronger signal. Your horse will respond more quickly with less pressure required.

Professional’s Choice Snaffles

From Professional’s Choice, we have their Bob Avila Signature Snaffle and their Bob Avila 3-piece twist snaffle. These snaffles are custom designed by Bob Avila, and there are models with weighted rings for encouraging a lower head set, and a dog bone snaffle bit that helps to create an improved head position and lateral flexion. This bit uses rein contact to put pressure on the poll.

Myler Loose Ring Snaffle Bits
