Premier Equine Full Cheek Waterford Bit

  • Full cheeks are useful for green horses or young horses as they can help with steering.
  • Shanks on the bit create a positive action against the horse’s cheeks when asked to turn.
  • The full cheek design also prevents the bit being dragged through the horse’s mouth.
  • The Waterford mouthpiece is comprised of a series of ball shaped links, making it completely movable in all directions.
  • This is particularly popular for combating issues such as leaning, taking hold of the bit and jaw setting.
  • When the horse tries to take hold of the bit the mouthpiece collapses, leaving the horse with nothing rigid to take hold of.
  • The mouthpiece works to distribute pressure over the tongue and bars of the mouth.
  • Coupled with full cheeks, this bit is a good choice for a stronger horse who still needs guidance with steering.
  • Should be worn 1/4″ – 1/2″ wider than standard to work effectively.

Stainless Steel Horse Bits

  • Stainless steel is the most commonly used material for horse bits as it is durable, easy to clean and does not rust.
  • Some of our stainless steel bits feature copper mouthpieces which help to create a warming sensation and encourage the horse to salivate and accept the bit.
  • Stainless steel bits are suitable for a wide range of horses and are available in many designs so that you can choose the right bit for your horse and discipline.
