TRUST EQUESTRIAN LEATHER 3 RING BITS
This is the Trust Equestrian Leather 3 Ring Bit.
The leather TRUST bits are particularly suitable for horses with a sensitive mouth, especially highly sensitive mares.
The reason 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. .
A 3-ring bit, like this one, is best known as a Pessoa bit.
A 3-ring bit consists of a snaffle with an extra ring at the top and one or two rings at the bottom. The upper ring is provided to attach the snaffle to the bridle.
A 3-ring bit can be used with one or two reins and the reins can be attached to any of the rings. The further the reins are placed apart, the stronger the bit will be.
When the rider wants to ride with just one rein, he can also use a pelham strap.
The 3-ring bit can also be used with a curb chain.
By placing the reins down, the leverage is gets harder. The horse gets pressure behind the ears and the bit slides up in the horses mouth.
This bit is not suitable for inexperienced riders and horses. It is in particular suitable for strong horses.
