TRUST EQUESTRIAN LEATHER CURBGAG BITS
This is the Trust Equestrian Leather Curbgag 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 equipped 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.
This is a gag bit, but with a very different effect. With a regular gag the gag ropes are attached to the cheek pieces. The curb gag has an extra ring that is attached on top of the bit ring and to the cheek pieces. The gag ropes go through the eyes of the bit, but then they join underneath the chin instead of being attached to the bridle.
By pressure on the reins, it will give extra pressure on the lower jaw/chin.
This bit is sharp and gives a lot of pressure with a unsteady hand and is therefore not suitable for the inexperienced riders or horses.
