French Mouth Blue Steel 3 ring bit and copper elements
- Composition : 3-ring bit with 16 mm Blue Steel cannons and 100% copper rings. The Blue Steel alloy used in this Jump’In range is made of 54% carbon and 46% manganese. Blue steel bit oxidizes with air and humidity creating a thin layer of rust which has a sweet taste. It will stimulate the production of saliva and naturally allow the horse to relax. The horse will be more comfortable and will take the bit more. The bit color will turn into a greyish brown due to this oxidation process.
- Effect : The action of this bit will invite the horse to lower their head. The Classic 3-ring bit has a more direct lever effect than the German one. The French-mouth cannons make this bit more comfortable by relieving the horse from any pressure on their palate. Moreover, the copper rings on the central piece will induce the horse relaxation while working.
- Using advice : This bit can be used with reins fixedly attached on the bottom rings, with bit loops or with two pairs of reins. The 3-ring blocked bit has more action that a classic French-mouth 3-ring bit. The cannons are thinner than standard ones so they will bring more finesse in the rider’s demands. The copper rings can help the horse focusing and taking the bit more.
Size: 125 or 135
Maintenance advice: rinse the bit after each use to prevent any residue deposit and to avoid your horse to feel any discomfort.
