Rated 5 out of 5 by Great product You couldn't go wrong with this bit. It is a great training device i purchased for my stud horse and he knows nothing. But, thanks to this bit after using this like 20 times now he knows how to turn and every thing. Also a great price. It does rust but that helps the horse salivate ( Sweet iron) September 7, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Note to Arab Owners I got the 5 inch for schooling Arabs, and a five inch mouth is too big. It is made of quality material and deserves all the raves, but with an Arab you should get a 4.5 March 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by BEST BIT EVER! I'm a dressage rider and this is honestly the ONLY bit you need! With correct use, it's possible to supple and train any horse with this bit. This is the only bit my horse goes in, very effective without causing pain. THE MOUTHPIECE IS SUPPOSED TO RUST! That's the point of sweet iron! The rust helps the horse salivate. October 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Recommended by COLLEEN KELLY Simple, easy, non problem bit for young horse. Used it for years, and so have a lot of very nice people at very high levels. The nicer the hands the nicer the bit becomes. I bought a hand-made version, attached to a blinkered bridle c.1920 in Tennessee Museum, and another at a flea market in Perth. Hand made original bits. They're amazing. And, they're still in use. Only this is the posher version. I have used State Line Tack around the world and they are wonderful. Just click-click on their webiste, and your package arrives at the door. They're great! Highly recommended to all my international students. August 19, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by My horse loved this bit I was recently given this bit when my instructor showed me how the french snaffle I had on my t/bred hung too low in the CENTRE of the mouth and my horse used to chew and chew all the time. I thought I just had a "chewey" horse. She put this bit in and the horse stopped chewing INSTANTLY and stayed quiet in the mouth. I couldn't believe it!! After 3 years of owning this horse I thought I knew him, but low and behold I had an INSTANT quiet soft mouth! Unbelievable. I also agree with the part about "test it out own your own knee". I was ashamed at some of the bits I had and how they felt. They went in the trash that day! Really recommend! June 5, 2009
Rated 4 out of 5 by Brilliant Bit I agree! Try all your bits at home on your own knee...and most of them HURT when you pull! How about we get KIND nice bits like this and RETRAIN YOUR HORSE if it pulls or bolts. Not just "outpain" them. This is a BRILLIANT bit. Highly recommended as soft and kind and fits nearly every horse. May 25, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Highly recommended! This bit is the No.1 recommended bit by the Head Rider from the Royal School in Spain - and that's DRESSAGE not just western. It's also the most highly recommended bit by Colleen Kelly, Biomechanics Lecturer who speaks at Universities and Conferences around the world. We chose this bit as the softest bit (test it on your own knee!) and must humane, yet effective bit of all the bits on the market. May 18, 2009
Rated 5 out of 5 by Sweet Iron is supposed to Rust sweet iron is supposed to rust, thats part of the reason its called sweet iron. The rust taste sweet in the horses mouth and they enjoy the bit more. April 4, 2009

My mare needs a bit that is soft enough not to rip her mouth up, but firm enough to grasp her attention and hold it.
Eleesha N on Jun 29, 2015
Sweet iron tends to feel more comfortable and I know all of my horses enjoy it better than regular bits. They take it the first time I try to put it in. I needed another snaffle for my new rescue horse as he is gaining weight and needs to be ridden; all I was told from the previous owners was that he rode very well in a snaffle.

When would you use an o ring, and when would you use a d ring?
KELLY S on Jul 23, 2014
Best Answer: Kelly S,
I like to use the O-Ring snaffle when first introducing a bit to a colt. Especially anything with sweet iron, copper or copper inlay. These three mouth pieces have a nice flavor for the colt and keeps their mouth moist and busy. I use a D-Ring snaffle once a horse has accepted the bit and is well into its training with a soft mouth. To me the D-Ring has a little more direction when pressure is applied that's why I like the O-Ring to start.

Hope this helps.
