This high quality single jointed Pessoa 3-ring loose ring snaffle is made of solid Cuprigan with stainless steel rings. Cuprigan is an alloy consisting of 89% copper, 7% aluminum, 3% iron and 1% zinc. The oxidation process of the material gives a pleasant smell and taste. The anatomical design follows the shape of the horse's mouth, creating a soft and even pressure distribution. Due to the combination of the design and the unique composition of Cuprigan, the chewing process and the saliva formation are stimulated, so that a fine connection can be created with the sensitive horse's mouth. The bit has a normal effect on the mouth and is suitable for horses that are strong in the mouth. The mouthpiece has a thickness of 14 mm and the middle bit guards have a diameter of 70 mm.
This Pessoa loose ring snaffle has an extra ring at the top and bottom. When the cheek pieces are attached to the top rings and the reins to the middle or bottom rings, a leverage effect is created. The lower the reins are attached, the greater the leverage effect. The middle and bottom rings can be connected using Pelham straps.
Maintenance of bits
It is wise to clean the bit after each use, this can simply be done under the tap or in a bucket of water. A bit of good and extensive cleaning is best done with a little lukewarm / warm water and a soft cloth. After washing, dry the bit with a dry cloth. Boiling your bit once a month in a pan of water ensures an optimal clean result and is the most effective way to get the bit really clean.
- Never use soap and / or detergents in connection with allergic reactions when washing
- If the bit is very dirty, soak it in hot water for a while
