I am familiar with this brand and was unable to find this product at the local stores.

This bit was recommended by my trainer as the best fit for my horse and I agree.

I've been wanting to try a French Link snaffle for years, and my young TB has a very sensitive mouth - I am looking forward to this. The reviews lead me to believe that it will be great!

What is the thickness of this bit? I'm looking for 20-21MM.

Thank you,

Best Answer: Hi Patricia, I have this bit and the link is 35mm. It is flat not round. The snaffle is about 65mm at the cheek and approx. 50mm where it attaches to the link. It is a very gentle bit. I hope this is helpful.

Just wondering if this bit needs to be used with a curb strap? Thank you.
A shopper on Oct 25, 2015
Best Answer: In a western headstall you should use a slobber strap to prevent the bit from being pulled through the mouth accidentally.

Best Answer: Using a piece of twine with a knot tied in one end. Place the string in the horse's mouth with the knot touching the corner of the horse's lips. Do not pull the knot tight into the corner of the horse's mouth - you want it even with the surface of the lips. Grab the string on the opposite side at the corner of the horse's mouth and hold or mark the string at a point even with the outer surface of the lips. The distance between the knot and your mark will be the horse's bit size. Standard horse bit size is 5". A tiny bit loose is better than too tight.

If you are measuring an old bit for use you must consider if there is a joint next to the horse's lips. Loose ring snaffles, for instance, are measured a little bit in from the ring where the mouthpiece starts to narrow to contour to the horse's mouth to keep the moving pieces from pinching the lips.

Typical bit sizes:

Minis - 3 1/2" to 3 3/4"

Small Pony - 4" to 4 1/4"

Medium Pony - 4 1/4" to 4 1/2"

Large Pony - 4 1/2" to 4 3/4"

Horse - 5" to 5 1/4"

Large Horse - 5 1/2" to 5 3/4"

Draft Cross - 6" +
