Waterford 2.5 Ring
The Waterford bit has many smooth flexible bumps or bubbles, which spreads the pressure over many points making it a light mouthpiece.
The greater flexibility discourages a horse from leaning on it.
The Waterford bit is a good choice for a horses that leans, it also promotes mouthing and salivation.
The Waterford is usually worn ¼” – ½” longer than your traditional mouthpiece in order to curl around the lips and maximise the effect.
A Ring cheek piece introduces poll pressure as well creating leverage on the mouthpiece, the 2 ½ ring version is the softest version of ring bit as the ½ ring softens the leverage on the mouthpiece and poll.
All our bits are made from blue sweet iron, because it:
- oxidises easily
- encourages salivation
- helps bit acceptance
- is warm and sweet
Please note the blue will fade with use.
