A 2.5 ring bit is a milder version of a 3 ring (pessoa) bit. Leverage can be created with this bit. The lower the reins are placed, the tighter the bit becomes. An ideal bit for horses that are very strong in the course, gripping the bit or walking through the hand. Compared to the 2.5 bus snaffle, the water snaffle rings can move loosely, which means there is more movement in the bit and the help of the hand works more indirectly. This mouthpiece is a rod with a medium tongue arch. The tongue arch provides more tongue freedom so that no pressure is placed on the tongue but is distributed over the layers. This makes the bit ideal for horses with a sensitive tongue or horses that stick out. This bit is not suitable for an inexperienced rider. The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron develops surface rust through contact with (air) moisture that tastes sweet and stimulates the horse's saliva production in a natural way. This will cause the horse to foam more, which ensures better acceptance of the bit. This rusting process (oxidation) changes the blue color of the TRUST bits to brown-grey.
