BR Soft Contact Full Cheek Snaffle-14mm Thick
This high-quality single jointed full cheek, featuring swivel cheeks, is made of solid Cuprigan with stainless steel rings and cheeks. Cuprigan is an alloy consisting of 89% copper, 7% aluminium, 3% iron and 1% zinc. The oxidation process of the material gives a pleasant smell and taste. The anatomical design of the bit follows the shape of the horse’s mouth, which allows for a gentle and even pressure distribution. The design, combined with the unique properties of Cuprigan, encourages the chewing process and saliva production, which allows for a pleasant connection with the sensitive horse’s mouth. The bit applies normal pressure on the mouth. The mouthpiece thickness is 14 mm, and the shank length measures 165 mm.
The main purpose of a full cheek bit is to exert lateral pressure, this emphasis on the turning aids is especially useful for young horses. The arms of the bit prevent the bit from being pulled through the mouth. Keepers, also known as Fulmer loops, attached to the upper arms, help stabilize the bit and offer a slight leverage action.
