Trust leather full cheek bit
This is the Trust Equestrian Leather Full Cheek bit.
The leather TRUST bits are particularly suitable for horses with a sensitive mouth. The reason for this is the flexibility of the bit in combination with the taste of the leather. The saliva production softens the leather bit and makes it more pleasant for the horse.
The bits are provided with a core of reinforced nylon. The leather is handstitched around the core and naturally tanned without any chemicals.
Especially highly sensitive mares accept this bit very well.
A full cheek bit is a bit of which the bit rings are extended with two small bars at the transition bit ring - mouthpiece. The sides make sure that a horse is easier to turn and that the rider can’t pull the bit through the horse’s mouth. This makes the full cheek snaffle bit useful for training young horses.
The full cheek snaffle bit lies stable and calm in the mouth.
In order to make an even more effective full cheek, two straps or loops can be placed on either side of the bit and attached to the bridle. The upper ends of the sides of the full cheek fit right into these straps. These straps ensure that the sides do not get stuck under the noseband of the horse. They give a little more leverage effect, obtained by the straps, than when they are not being used.
If you want to use a full cheek snaffle you can attach a small strap on both sides of the bridle. Those straps have loops on each side. The first loop goes around the cheek piece, the second loop moves over to the upper part of the full cheek.
This prevents the pins from getting stuck under the noseband. The straps also prevent the bit from tipping too far in the horse’s mouth.
