This multi-use bit is designed for all disciplines and any level of horse. The medium weight loose ring is an excellent choice for maintaining light contact, or for the rider who doesn't like the added feel of a traditional heavy ring. The three-piece ergonomic mouthpiece results in soft and even pressure across the tongue, bars, and lips. Reinsman's Sweet & Sour mouthpiece tastes like a green apple dipped in molasses. The sweet and sour combination causes increased salivation, leading to a more relaxed jaw and a supple mouth.
