The Korsteel Sweet Iron French Link Loose Ring Snaffle is a useful bit for sensitive horses as it has fairly thick bars.

The french link is often favoured by horses as the lack of palette pressure makes the bit more comfortable and relieves pressure on the horses bars.

Often wrongly mistaken for a Dr Bristol, the french link snaffle is a very kind bit, as the central plate is shaped and lies flat on the tongue passively.

Made from Black iron and copper which slowly oxidises and rusts producing a sweet taste in the horse's mouth encouraging salivation and a more relaxed jaw. 

Sweet iron is a good metal for horse bits, as it provides the horse with a 'taste', stainless steel is a very bland metal and a lot of horses find it difficult to relax and mouth a stainless steel bit.

Korsteel Sweet Iron French Link Loose Ring Snaffle features:
  • Sweet iron oxidises in the horses mouth to produce a sweet taste and encourage salivation
  • French link lays across the horses tongue and bars, eliminating the nutcracker action
  • Can be used in dressage competitions
  • Bit strength: fairly mild
  • Cheeks and joints are made of stainless steel so they will not rust and bind
