Trust curb gag jointed

€102.48

Trust curb gag jointed. The Blue Sweet Iron Curb Gag from Trust Equestrian has a sliding rope action on the cheekpieces, which applies pressure to the horse's curb groove via a leather pad, rather than the strong poll pressure applied with a conventional gag bit. There is still some mild poll pressure, as the top ring acts in a similar way to a hanging cheek snaffle. Meanwhile the blue sweet iron mouthpiece with a single joint is designed to produce salivation and help the horse to accept the bit and comfortably relax his jaw. The mouthpiece is curved, which distributes pressure more evenly over the tongue and bars. The offset centre link reduces the nutcracker action and pressure points on the tongue. It can be used with 2 reins, so the curb pressure only comes into play when needed.

All Trust bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:

  • oxidises easily
  • encourages salivation
  • helps bit acceptance
  • is warm and sweet

Sweet iron will rust when it comes into contact with (air) humidity; the surface rust tastes sweet and naturally stimulates the saliva production. This will cause the horse to salivate more which in turn encourages better acceptance of the bit. The rusting process (oxidation) changes the blue colour of the TRUST-bit to a brownish-grey. If a sweet iron bit is not used for a while, an orange-brown rust layer may develop on the mouthpiece. Simply remove this by wiping the bit with a damp cloth.

How to measure your bit

The current bit size is often used to order a new bit. We will explain how to measure this below.

  • Measure the bit between the rings.
  • Bits from the brands that we sell have exactly the size that you measure between the bit rings. Do you have a bit from another brand? Measure this between the rings and if this is for example 12.5, you also order the new bit in that size.

    Note that bits with longer shanks such as hackamore combi bits need more space so that they do not damage your horse.
