The Cottage Craft L/W Hollowmouth Snaffle - A wire, loose ring, single jointed snaffle with a thick, plain lightweight, hollow mouth. Similar to an ordinary loose ring , hollow mouth snaffle, but lighter in construction and with a fatter mouth giving a better bearing surface to the tongue and bars. A very kind bit, that is light in the mouth and easy on the tongue owing to the thickness. The loose ring encourages mouthing. Ideal for the horse with a long mouth as it will have the room to accommodate the extra thickness, and for those with tender bars.

How to 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

Really nice lightweight. Not too fat but thick enough to be soft in the mouth. Improved pony's willingness to jump.
