Loose Ring Snaffle Bit - Sweet Iron

The Angus Barrett Saddlery Loose Ring snaffle bit features a barrel-jointed mouthpiece and independent movement in the bit bars. The barrel joint limits the nutcracker action of conventional snaffle bits and spreads pressure over a larger area. 

This is a soft bit ideal for any rider looking for a direct feel.

Sweet Iron snaffle bits will rust due to oxidisation of the metal, creating the sweet taste they are designed to have. This sweet flavour will work to increase salivation and encourage acceptance of the bit.

This snaffle bit also has copper through the roller to promote a moist mouth and a relaxed jaw for the horse.

Maker's Notes

The Snaffle bits are one of the few products not manufactured by Angus Barrett Saddlery in-house, but they are still backed 100% by our Angus Barrett quality guarantee.


The Loose Ring Snaffle Bit with sweet iron is available in 5 inch and 5.5 inch.
