The bit is in effect an elliptical link loose ring snaffle with 2 extra rings on the bit rings. The mouthpiece has loose rings and a central rounded, egg shaped link. The mouthpiece evolved from the French snaffle and as a result has a very similar action.
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.
Attaching the reins to the bottom ring creates more leverage, increasing poll pressure and encouraging the horse to lower the head. The sweet iron mouthpiece promotes salivation, improving tongue mobility and softness of the jaw.
