Most suitable for horses that tend to lean on the bit and want to run with their head down.
A rope gag bit is fitted with a rope cheek piece that slides through the bit ring when the bottom rein is used.
This pulley effect increases the lifting action of the snaffle bit upward against the corners of the horse’s mouth.
The full cheek alternative provides more lateral control by creating slight pressure on the horse’s cheeks, making it easier to quickly execute turns and changes of direction.
In addition, the ported mouthpiece allows for more tongue room, providing increased comfort for horses with fleshy tongues and those who object to direct tongue pressure.
Rope gag bits are best used with two reins, effectively mimicking the action of a normal snaffle until the horse pulls its head down.
** No returns or exchanges are possible if there are chew marks on the mouthpiece.
