Trust curbgag eliptical sweet iron

€107.44

Trust curbgag eliptical sweet iron. The 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 a small amount of poll pressure, as the upper ring acts in a similar way to a hanging cheek snaffle.

Meanwhile the blue sweet iron eliptical mouthpiece is designed to produce salivation and help the horse to accept the bit and comfortable relax his jaw. The double joint reduces the nutcracker action, as the bit stays in a curved shape, following the contours of the horse's mouth. Therefore the bar and palette pressure associated with single-jointed bits is removed. It can be used with two reins, so the curb pressure only comes into play when it is really needed.

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.
