Sweet iron

The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have the recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron develops surface rust through contact with (air) moisture, which tastes sweet and naturally stimulates the horse's saliva production. As a result, the horse will foam more, leading to better acceptance of the bit. This rusting process (oxidation) changes the blue color of the bits to brownish-gray. This is a desired effect of the Sweet Iron bits. When not using a Sweet Iron bit temporarily, an orange-brown rust layer may form on the mouthpiece. This can be easily removed by wiping the bit with a damp cloth. Sweet Iron bits have the most variations in mouthpieces, each with its own specific action.

Sweet Iron bits are suitable for all horses and help the horse accept the bit better. Depending on the type of mouthpiece you choose with the Sweet Iron material, the bit can be sharp or mild. Therefore, it's important to choose a mouthpiece that suits the combination of rider and horse.

A Sweet Iron mouthpiece is frequently used in sports as a basic bit and by professionals. Depending on the type of mouthpiece, Sweet Iron is suitable for almost all horses and riders. The type of mouthpiece and the action of the rider's hand determine the strength of the bit. A Sweet Iron mouthpiece is FEI-approved and can be used in both show jumping and dressage competitions.
