This bit has a sweet copper mouth with stainless steel rings.
Why is it a 2 in 1 Bit ? Because it is 1 Bit with 2 impact levels.
We will explain this further :
1. If you buckle the more angular side of the bit towards the horse’s tongue, the pressure for the horse will be more selectively. The manual guidance of the rider can than be more accurate with quite more effective aids.
2. If you buckle the round side towards the horse’s tongue, the pressure spreads over a larger area. The rounder side of the bit is a good option for sensitive horses.
Switching the sides of the bit from time to time will help to prevent a desensitization of the horse’s mouth.
To help you to see which side is in use : If the sign is visible on the mounting side, the more effective side is in use. If you cannot see the sign from the mounting side, the softer side is in use.
This is also a sweet copper bit.
The horse will accept the bit a lot better than a normal bit because it will feel a pleasant sweet taste of the middle piece in its mouth. Because of that the horse will also be tempted to chew and saliver.
