The snaffle bit is a standard jaw piece. This jawpiece has loose rings that allow the bit to move more freely in the mouth, so many horses accept this bit well. To prevent skins from getting between the moving rings, it is recommended to provide the bit with bit rings. Large rings have a more indirect effect than smaller rings. The large rings ensure greater pressure distribution on the cheeks. This makes a horse easier to maneuver and a bit cannot be pulled through the mouth so easily. In addition, a light leverage can be obtained with these large rings. The mouthpiece with rings is a variant of the double jointed bit. The rings in the middle encourage the horse to play with the bit. This increases the tongue activity so that a horse will produce more saliva and the jaws can relax more so that the horse will release more quickly in the mouth. 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.
