This snaffle is one of the most popularly used bits across the disciplines. It has loose rings and a central, rounded link. It evolved from the French snaffle and as a result has a very similar action.
It is kinder as the elliptical link has no sharp sides and the join creates less of an angle with the rest of the mouthpiece. Most horses readily accept this bit and are more comfortable in their mouths. There is no nutcracker action due to the central link, creating a continuous feel from one side to the other.
The sweet iron mouthpiece promotes salivation, improving tongue mobility and softness of the jaw.
