Description

Premier Equine Blue Sweet Iron Two Ring Gag with Brass Alloy Lozenge

  • Also known as a continental bit, it works by raising the bit in the horse’s mouth in a similar way to a traditional gag but without the same severity.
  • The reins can either be attached to the snaffle ring, or the lower ring for increased poll pressure and leverage.
  • You can also use two reins or rounding’s attached to a single rein with this bit so that a correct contact can be maintained on the snaffle ring without poll pressure when needed.
  • An anatomical brass alloy lozenge in the centre helps to distribute even pressure over both the tongue and bars of the mouth and also encourages mouthing and contact.
  • The blue sweet iron mouthpiece oxidises easily which creates a warming sensation and a sweet taste in the horse’s mouth, helping them to accept the bit.
  • Please note that the blue colour will fade with use, this is normal.
  • An ideal bit for those that need some extra braking power when jumping or doing fast work.

  • Some horses often prefer the warm sensation of sweet iron compared to stainless steel which is naturally colder.
  • Sweet iron bits are therefore ideal for sensitive horses or horses that need encouragement to mouth and accept the bit.
