The O Ring Snaffle is a must for any horseman’s tool box. It is the most commonly used piece of equipment by trainers of all disciplines, for everything from starting colts to softening older performance horses. Use it to introduce a horse to a bit for the first time, teach a horse to follow his nose, lateral flexion exercises and drills, establish proper headset or soften older horses. The O Ring has a weighted feel for greater sensation during the pickup and release of pressure. The Smooth Snaffle is the softer of the two O Ring styles. 3/8” in diameter, 5” wide and curved to shape the mouth. Inlaid copper promotes salivation and greater sensitivity to the bars.
