Reinsman Loose Jaw Colt
#441 – Stage B
⅝” Sweet Iron Mullen Mouth
5″ Cheeks 5″ Mouth
One of the best choices for colts when leaving a ring snaffle. Low leverage cheeks and a very mild mouthpiece allowing the rider to pull young colts around while adding a small amount of curb pressure. 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.
