NRS by Dutton Smooth Heavy Loose Ring Snaffle Bit Bridle Set
Style #: NRS-HR-32-BB-SR
- The weighted rings on this Heavy Loose Ring bit will encourage a horse to ride around with a lower headset, thus making release to poll pressure more encouraging to the horse. Plus, the inlay copper on the mouthpiece of this bit will promote salivation, thus enhancing the taste of the bit to the horse.
- The oiled harness leather headstall comes equipped with a browband, solid brass hardware and a stitched brow piece for extra durability. Riding with a browband promotes balance by applying the same amount of pressure on either side of the horse’s poll versus a split ear.
- 8 foot long, 5/8” Oiled Harness Leather Split Reins are also included in this set. These reins are slightly weighted at the end for the correct feel.
- A nylon braided bit hobble is also included to help keep the rings of the snaffle from sliding into the horse’s mouth. Since a snaffle bit does not induce chin pressure, a curb strap or chain is not necessary.
Whether you’re training young horses or looking for a bit to keep older horses tuned up and responsive to cues, the heavy loose ring snaffle is a great option. So what sets this bit apart from other snaffles? The weighted rings on this snaffle are much heavier than a regular loose ring snaffle. This will encourage a horse to operate with a lower headset, thus making poll pressure release more encouraging to the horse. NRS is also offering this bit as part of an exclusive bit, headstall and reins package. The leather tack accompanying the bit is made of premium harness leather, which we source from a small tack shop right here in the U.S. Detail is important to us here at NRS. From the browband to the bit tie ends, which are looped three times for additional security, every piece of this set has been carefully thought out to provide you, the customer, with the greatest quality possible.
