Loose Ring Jointed Snaffle
English Bridle Acc
Manufacturer: Happy Mouth
Model: Loose Ring Jointed Snaffle
Category: English Bridle Acc
Purchase: I bought this bit from Middleburg Tack Exchange in Middleburg, VA for $15.00.
Likes: I purchased this for an older schoolmaster at our barn. He is 25 years old, has been ridden up to B level in Pony Club, and is schooled in dressage. He began refusing to take contact with the bit, and when asked to collect, he would raise his head instead of rounding. At that point I was using a hollow mouth snaffle with him. After buying the Happy Mouth bit, he immediately took contact with the bit, and performed the passage (we were out hacking). What a great feeling to know that he liked it!
Dislikes: The only thing that is a bit of a problem (no pun intended, seriously) is that the rubber portion gets teeth marks easily. However, I suppose that this is due to the soft nature of the bit, and making it harder would defeat the bit's purpose. I found that a small sharp pair of scissors removes any fragments which might stick up.
Quality: The quality is good.
Summary: The Happy Mouth bit is not for every horse (I'm specifically thinking of a strong-minded Percheron/Morgan mare), but for those with sensitive mouths, it's a wonderful thing.
