The Cottage Craft Fulmer Snaffle - A full cheek, eggbutt side plain snaffle with loose wire rings. This bit is excellent for schooling and has a nice thickness of mouth. The long cheeks prevent the bit being pulled through the mouth and the eggbutt sides protect the corners of the mouth, while the loose rings give more play to the mouth and encourages the horse to mouth and therefore keep a moist mouth that is responsive. If used without keepers - loops on the bottom of the bridle cheek to fix the angle of the top of the bit cheek - it will tip too far forward and the guiding action of the long cheek against the horse's face will be lost; they are therefore normally used with keepers. One of the kindest metal mouth bits.
measure a bit:
A bit should fit your horse’s mouth so that the mouthpiece extends approximately 1/4 inch (0.6 cm) beyond the horse’s lips on either side, but not so tight that the horse might be pinched by any movable cheek pieces. You also don’t want a great length of bit hanging out of the horse’s mouth. The different parts of the mouthpieces on bits are made to sit on specific areas of the mouth. So for the bit to be effective, the bit needs to contact those areas properly. You also don’t want the bit pulling through the horse’s mouth when you pull on a rein. Measure an old bit you know already fits. Use a tape measure to measure from the inside of each cheek piece or ring .Use a piece of string about 12” (30cm) long. Tie a knot about 2 inches (5cm) in. Put it through your horse’s mouth, with the knot against the lips on one side. Mark the opposite side with a marker or little piece of tape
