Trust leather hanging cheek bit
The hanging cheek is an eggbut variant where smaller rings are attached on top of the rings. On the upper rings you attach the cheekpieces, and on the eggbut rings the reins. This gives the bit a slight leverage effect. The hanging cheek is often used by pony riders in the highest classes but can also be used to ease the step from a regular snaffle to double bridle.
The leather bits are a remarkable sight in the TRUST equestrian collection. The core of the leather bit is made of reinforced nylon. The leather that is stitched around this core, is naturally tanned without chemicals. The saliva production softens the leather bit and makes it more pleasant for the horse. The flexibility in combination with the taste of the leather, makes the bit particularly suitable for horses with a sensitive mouth.
The bits of TRUST equestrian are ultra-Dutch. All bits are designed, developed and handmade in the Netherlands. Every day a team of technical professionals works on the production of the TRUST bits. TRUST bits are composed with the greatest care and made of the best materials, the quality control and standard is therefore very high. TRUST bits are anatomically shaped. The balance between shape, material and weight is constantly taken into account. TRUST bits are slightly curved so that they are better shaped towards the horse’s mouth. Because of this anatomical shape, the bit lies better in the mouth and the pressure is better distributed. The TRUST bits are available in 3 materials, 20 mouthpieces and 31 cheekpieces. There are an infinite number of combinations possible so that a right bit can be found for every horse.
