Broken 2 Ring Gag Bits
2 ring gag bit is known by so many names – The Dutch/Pessoa/Continental 2-Ring Gag Bit – and became very prevalent in about 1994/1995 when it was presented by the European Show athletes of the time. This bit is alike to the elevator bit apart from that there are not solid shanks, bit rings, above and below the mouthpiece. It works by levitation the bit in the horse’s mouth in a parallel way to an old-fashioned gag but without the same harshness. The reins can also be attached to the steal ring, or the lower ring for increased poll pressure and leverage. You can also use two reins or rounding’s attached to a single rein with this bit so that an accurate connection can be maintained on the snaffle ring without poll weight when required.
Brass alloy is shaped when copper is alloyed with a stiffer metal, this yields a hot and durable material which is faultless for horse bits as it can help salivation and be more pleasant to the horse. The central lozenge boosts a softer contact, decreasing the nutcracker action of a single jointed bit which is perfect for undeveloped or sensitive horses. Brass mouth bit with lozenge warm, strong and they boost the horse to dribble as well as easily admit the bit. Perfect for a range of horses, particularly those that need inspiration to mouth and accept the bit.
