This bit is part of the snaffle family and is generally a very mild bit with a gentle upwards action which helps to raise the head and neck. The loose ring cheeks offer a greater range of movement than a fixed cheek which can help to discourage fixing and leaning. A double jointed mouthpiece with brass alloy lozenge helps to distribute pressure evenly over the tongue and bars of the mouth whilst aiding salivation.
Blue sweet iron 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.

Blue Sweet Iron Horse Bits...
Blue Sweet iron bits oxidise easily which creates a warm sweet taste in the horse's mouth, encouraging them to salivate. 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.
