Snaffle Mouth Bits are normally mild. A snaffle-mouth bit applies pressure to the bars and tongue.
Bit sat in packing for a few months after purchasing. When I removed it there were very small spots of rust. A few weeks later the mouthpiece was quite rusted. Low quality stainless.
"Best bit ever!"
This bit is better quality than my old $50 bit! It looks beautiful, is comfortable for my mare, and has copper inlayes on the back of the mouth.
