This sweet Iron Argentine snaffle bit is an excellent bit for transitioning out of a ring snaffle and introducing curb pressure. This is a low leverage bit, but the added curb pressure gives a bit more control. Packs comfortably in the mouth. We've found this to be a great trail bit as well as a solid training bit for young colts.
The Sweet Iron mouthpiece is made from black iron and copper, which slowly oxidizes and rusts. Slow-acting and harmless to horses, the oxidation has a sweet taste that horses like and which encourages salivation. This metal will almost always discolor, but the rust will not flake off or harm the horse. Whereas copper, also used to encourage salivation, is soft and very prone to wear, sweet iron is strong and will last through years of use.
