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.
