Loose Ring

A loose ring snaffle is a type of bit with loose, movable bit rings that allow the bit to move freely in the horse's mouth. Due to this freedom, many horses accept this bit well. Depending on the type, thickness, and material, a loose ring snaffle can have a sharper or milder effect. It is important to choose the right size of loose ring snaffle for your horse. If it is too narrow, it could cause damage to the horse's mouth corners due to the rings rotating in the mouthpiece. If your horse has a sensitive skin around the mouth, using bit guards can be wise. These are rubber discs that you place between the ring and the horse's mouth, serving as a protective layer on the skin. Alternatively, you can consider a full cheek snaffle. This has a cheekpiece or "wings" at the bit, preventing the horse's skin from coming into contact with the rotation point of the snaffle while still retaining the loose effect of the loose ring snaffle.

The loose ring snaffle is often used in sports as a basic bit because it is suitable for many horses and riders. For young horses, it can be a good bit to promote a stable contact. Generally, a loose ring snaffle is a bit that is accepted by both young and trained horses. Finding the right bit is based on the combination of horse and rider. At HorseOnline, you can test the bit before purchasing it. A loose ring snaffle is FEI-approved and can be used for both show jumping and dressage in competitions.
