NRS by Dutton Smooth Tear Drop Bit Bridle Set
Style #: NRS-TD-32-BB-SR
- This Tear Drop bit is a great transition bit from a ring snaffle to a shank bit. The smooth two piece mouthpiece is the same on most traditional ring snaffles while the width of the tear drop shank creates looser movement for your reins, thus creating a softer feel for the horse's mouth. This bit does have inlayed copper bars on the mouthpiece to promote salivation, thus enhancing the taste of the bit to the horses mouth.
- 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 curb strap with harness leather ends is also included. The curb strapattaches to the bit and ensures that the bit remains in place andpressure is applied to the horse's chin when cues are administered, thusencouraging your horse to give to pressure and not brace against thebit.
Working a horse in a ring snaffle but need to move them up to a leverage bit? We believe this Tear Drop bit is that next step. The two piece mouthpiece is the same as most smooth traditional ring snaffles that works on tongue and bar pressure while the tear drop width on the shank allows for looser rein movement, thus creating a softer feel for the horse's mouth. 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.
