Sweet Iron D Bit Locked - The locked mouthpiece resembles a jointed mouthpiece but cannot fold as much as a jointed bit. When pressure is applied on the reins, the bit locks, transforming it into a straight bar and making it a sharper bit. With less pressure on the reins, the bit changes back into a jointed bit. This makes it an ideal bit for horses that are against the hand.
Sweet Iron Bits:
The sweet iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Due to contact with (air)moisture, Sweet Iron creates a rustfilm on the surface which has a sweet taste. As a result, the bit naturally encourages saliva production, which leads to more chewing activity and more foam will be built up and thus an overall better acceptance of the bit.
The rust process (oxidation) changes the blue colour to a brown-greyish colour, which is the desired effect. After a time of not using the bit, the colour can change to an orange-brown which indicates normal rust that can be easily removed with a wet cloth.
Sweet Iron bits are great and suitable for every horse. Sweet Iron helps to increase the chewing activity, to produce more saliva and to accept the bit more easily. Next to that, Sweet Iron bits have the most options of different types of mouthpieces, as well as types of bits. Therefore, every horse-rider combination can find their suiting bit with the Sweet Iron technology.
Mode of Action:
Eggbut, D-Ring- & Full Cheek act like snaffles, they only act on rein tension - over the tongue on the lower jaw. The rein aids are transmitted more directly than with snaffle bits. The movements of restless or inexperienced rider hands are not cushioned, but passed on directly.
Since the mouthpiece is firmly attached to the ring, it lies particularly quietly in the horse's mouth. The soft transitions to the side parts make these bits particularly gentle on the muzzle. In addition, there is an additional lateral support due to the contact surface of the side parts, which, for example, makes it easier to ride turns and the limitation on the outer rein (safe rein aid). The following applies: the larger the contact area between the side part and the lip, the greater the lateral impact.
These bits are particularly suitable for horses with sensitive corners of the mouth, for horses that tend to break out over the shoulder (e.g. when turning away or when approaching jumps) or for horses that have a very restless mouth and the mouthpiece of a ring bit "playing" too much.
