Uses of the D-Ring Snaffle Bit:
This bit is commonly used for English riding, starting horses that will be ridden western and race horses.
How it Works:
The straight bars on the Ds help prevent the bit from pulling through the mouth. The jointed mouthpiece has a nutcracker effect on the bars, tongue and palate of the horse's mouth.
This bit is very similar in function to a jointed full cheek snaffle.
