A slight step up from the snaffle, this bit applies pressure to the chin, bars, and corners, but applies added pressure to the tongue. This is a good step up for a colt from the 6" cheek snaffle. The 6" cheek has a 2-1/2" purchase and a 3-1/2" shank. This ratio (the difference in the length of the purchase and shank) and the swept back design of the shank makes this cheek extremely mild. Contact with the horse’s mouth comes slowly in the form of soft pressure to all points of contact. The main point of contact is the corners of the mouth, which is a familiar spot for young horses transitioning to a shank bit from the O Ring. This bit may also be used with a training fork or martingale for greater control of the poll and nose and for proper collection. Each mouthpiece is inlaid with copper to stimulate salivation. The mouthpiece is 5-1/8" wide, 3/8" in diameter, and properly curved to shape to the corner of the mouth for soft, evenly distributed pressure to the bars, tongue, and corners of the mouth.
