Developed by John Patterson, world-renowned trainer & jockey.
This D-ring bit features a copper link to encourage salivation and acceptance of the bit. The curved mouthpiece eliminates interference and stops the bit from hitting the roof of the mouth, allowing room for the tongue. The shape also reduces the severe direct pressure on the bars of the mouth. Hand polished stainless steel D-rings keep the bit centered in the horses mouth and off assistance when trying to turn. 5" Mouth.

Went from a full cheek snaffle to this and the horse seems to dig it. It's a very mild bit for those of us still working on soft hands! My horse yielded to it easily, though he did feel unencumbered enough to try and decide which way we were going once or twice. I'll probably use this bit for a very long time.
