The Korsteel Sweet Iron Ring French Link Snaffle - Sweet iron is used to promote salivation and acceptance of the bit due to the 'sweet' taste in the horse's mouth when the metal oxidises.Some rusting may occur when not in use, a light coating of oil during storage will prevent this.

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

Nice small bit, which my horse loved and is consequently much more relaxed. This bit was to replace a loose ring snaffle and appears to be far kinder to my horse's sensitive mouth.
