Fine hand-polished blue steel finish that gives off a taste enjoyed by the horse and stimulates salivation. Curved to reduce the "nutcracker" action and to alleviate pressure on the tongue and bars of the mouth. Prevents contact with the roof of the horses mouth. Allows for effective communication between horse and rider whilst encouraging relaxation and salivation. A mobile bit which discourages fixing and leaning on the forehand.
Flexi bits are soft and much warmer to the touch than metal bits. Ideal for younger horses or horses with a more sensitive mouth. Allows the rider to have two different levels of leverage and poll pressure depending on the needs of the horse with the lower ring providing the most leverage.
Korsteel Sweet Iron Loose Ring French Link Snaffle. The Loose Ring French Link is a double jointed bit that acts on the tongue and the bars of the mouth. The French Link eliminates the nutcracker and palate action of a single jointed bit and instead applies pressure to the horse's tongue.
The eggbutt snaffle has fixed, oval shaped rings offering a consistent contact. Offers a lighter feel in the mouth for horses who are more sensitive. The single joint applies a nut cracker action which applies pressure to the tongue, the bars of the mouth and the horse's palate.
The Korsteel JP Flexi Bits are made from hi-tech plastic which has been moulded around a core of stainless steel, so the durability of the bit is not compromised. The flexi mouthpiece is 'warmer' than a traditional stainless steel mouthpiece, which encourages acceptance of the bit. For this reason, the flexi mouthpiece is a good choice for younger horses and those with a sensitive mouth.
