The Korsteel Copper Roller Jointed D Ring Snaffle's mouthpiece is made up of stainless steel and copper rollers, which prevents the horse from 'grabbing' hold of the mouthpiece. The copper rollers help to increase salivation, which creates a softer mouth than with conventional single-metal bits.
The main action of the Copper Roller D Ring Snaffle is on the tongue, the roof and the bars of the mouth. The single joint creates a nutcracker action which squeezes the tongue and can encourage the horse to raise their head. The D rings on this bit help to improve steering, however they do not offer as much guidance to a horse as a bit with full cheeks. This bit is not suited to young and novice horses, as it does not ecourage the horse to learn to take a contact. This bit is very popular with horses who can get a little strong and heavy in the hand, and is widely used by many eventers and showjumpers.
