The Bradoon and Loose Ring allow for immediate release and relief from tongue and bar pressure. The bit is immediately reset to a neutral position in the horse's mouth. Our Snaffle is a popular bit due to the curved mouthpiece which distributes pressure more evenly over tongue and bars and reduces the nutcracker action. The offset centre link avoids the usual pressure point on the tongue. � The nutcracker action results in the horse lifting its head, therefore offers a solution for the horse that runs with its head down.
