The Waterford Gag bit has a multi-jointed flexible mouthpiece and loose rings. Each link, whilst being chunky and smooth to the feel, is irregular in shape; the horse finds this interesting and likeable. The action is directly onto the bars, corners and tongue and although strong – could never be termed severe. Pressure on the gag rein causes the bit to move higher in the horse’s mouth. This creates poll pressure which works well on horses that are heavy on the forehand as well as most forward going horses. Ideally used with double reins, this bit can also be used with a single rein on the gag itself, or with gag reins. Sizes: 5′ and 5.5′.
