Korsteel
Dr. Bristol Full Cheek Snaffle
English Bridle Accessories

For Sale on eBay


Manufacturer: Korsteel
Model: Dr. Bristol Full Cheek Snaffle
Category: English Bridle Accessories

Purchase: Paid around $22 for this bit online new from VTO Saddlery. My trainer wanted my horse in a full cheek and he has been in a Dr. Bristol his whole life, so this was what we bought.

Likes: Well, like any full cheek snaffle, it did what it was supposed to do and aided in turning my horse's head. The mouthpiece at the sides was not thin like some cheap bits so the bit did not inflict any extra pain on my horse.

Dislikes: It was not a very sturdy bit! I was out riding and had bit loops on, and took a pull on the left side and the top of the cheek piece POPPED OUT of the socket. This error presented me with a very dangerous situation. We were able to bend the cheekpiece back into the socket, but I am now a little cautious about using Korsteel bits.

Quality: Stainless steel, Dr. Bristol with about a 2" plate - double joints. Full cheek with balls on tips of cheeks.

Summary: This may have just been a factory default, as I have not had problems with Korsteel before, but nevertheless the quality of THIS bit was poor.
