Reinsman Freter Butterfly
#409 – Stage B
⅜” Sweet Iron Low Port
4 ½” Cheeks 5″ Mouth ⅞” Port
This little butterfly is designed for comfort to the young horse’s mouth while teaching him to turn with only a light touch. This low port mouth helps to stabilize the front shoulders. This is a well balanced bit that is great for trail riding or for starting colts into a bit. Port height is ⅞”. Sweet iron naturally rusts into a light patina. The rust creates a sweet taste for the horse and makes the bit more acceptable and increases salivation for a supple mouth. Mullen relief is used on all our snaffle mouthpieces which is a forward curve that creates even pressure across the bars and tongue to eliminate the nutcracker effect.
Moving from Direct Reining to Neck Reining? Stage B is all about transition, with the introduction of leverage and curb pressure. Short Shanked bits and Half-Gags comprise Stage B.
