Reinsman Argentine 3/8" Sweet Iron Low Port
#454 – Stage B
6” Cheeks 5” Mouth ⅞” Port
Very popular in low leverage bits. We added this mouthpiece because trainers and riders are finding that solid mouthpieces help control horses that tend to over-flex by keeping their shoulder under them. The low port adds some tongue pressure combined with the small diameter of the mouth to add some control. 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.
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
