This high quality single jointed snaffle bit 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. The combination of the design and the unique composition of Cuprigan stimulates the chewing process and saliva production, which creates a fine connection with the sensitive horse mouth. The bit has a normal effect on the mouth. The mouthpiece has a thickness of 12 mm and the bit rings have a diameter of 50 mm.
A snaffle bit is a bit with loose bit rings. This type of bit is generally well accepted, because the mouthpiece is relatively loose in the mouth. The snaffle bit is used in combination with a dressage bit. The small rings leave more space for the dressage bit. It is advisable to use a snaffle bit about 0.5 – 1 cm larger than the bar.
Maintenance of bits
It is wise to clean the bit after each use, this can be done under the tap or in a bucket of water. A bit of good and extensive cleaning is best with a little lukewarm / warm water and a soft cloth. After washing, dry the bit with a dry cloth. Cooking 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 clean.
- Never use soap and / or detergents in connection with allergic reactions when washing
- If the bit is very dirty, let it soak in hot water for a while
