Description

Premier Equine Rubber Three Ring Dutch Gag with Lozenge

  • A three ring Dutch gag typically consists of four rings in total but with only three rings that you can actually attach the reins to, giving it the name.
  • The top ring attaches to the cheek pieces of the bridle and you can attach the reins to any of the three lower rings to provide a variety of different leverage options.
  • 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.
  • Using the reins on the lower rings significantly increases poll pressure which is why we recommend using two reins or rounding’s attached to a single rein when using them.
  • This ensures that a correct contact can be maintained on the snaffle ring without poll pressure when needed.
  • The rubber mouth piece softens the action of this bit and the copper lozenge encourages the horse to accept the bit and helps to reduce the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit.
  • Can be a good choice for riders who find they need a little extra control for jumping or fast work.
  • Exerts poll pressure with a limited gag action.
  • Ideally used by experienced riders.
  • This bit is NOT BD Legal.
  • Bit strength: Moderate.

Rubber Horse Bits

  • Rubber covered bits generally have thicker mouthpieces making them softer and ideal for horses with sensitive mouths or those who do not like metal bits.
  • Our rubber bits have been heat treated to make them smooth to the touch and more durable.
  • May not be suitable for horses with small mouths or a large tongue due to the thicker mouthpiece.

  • Use a soft sponge or cloth to wipe any excess debris off of the bit, paying particular attention to joins and hinges.
  • Leave to dry naturally.
