“The purpose of the slobber strap is to add weight and feeling to the bit. When I pick up on the reins I want the stiffness of the slobber strap to instantly move the bit, causing feeling in the horse’s mouth. Then, when I release the rein, the weight of the slobber straps should instantly carry the rein to a full release position, leaving the weight of the whole bridle hanging on the horse’s poll, not on his tongue and mouth.”
These slobber straps, designed by Ken McNabb and handcrafted by Weaver Leather, add the perfect amount of weight for clear communication, feel and release when used with mecate reins. The stainless steel buckles and durable harness leather construction will stand up to heavy use.
